A large number of Newcastle United fans have flocked to Twitter to share their delight at a transfer claim to emerge regarding Argentina defender Nicolas Tagliafico. 

According to reports, the Toon are one of the clubs showing interest in the left-back, who is expected to be made available to leave Ajax in the January market.

It is believed the 29-year-old will be allowed to leave the Dutch side next month having spent almost four years with the Eredivisie outfit, where he has made 152 appearances.

And as the Toon look to bolster their squad in the coming weeks, these fans flocked to Twitter to share their thoughts on the idea of the Copa America winner joining in January.

What did these Newcastle fans have to say?

“sign him, the man’s a baller”

“Going from matt ritchie and jacob murphy to tagliafico and trippier might just be the biggest upgrade ever”
“Would be a quality signing, can’t see it happening myself but who knows what’s gonna happen in January with these new owners”
“Hope it’s true he is very good attackingly”
“One of the best left backs in the world, you would break the bank to get him.”
“Sick.. hope it’s true”

The Argentine has gained experience playing at the top level of European football with 24 appearances in the Champions League, but has not been a regular in Erik ten Hag’s side this season.

It is thought that Chelsea are another team showing interest, and with the Toon having the worst defence in the league thus far, it is clear these fans feel Tagliafico could improve Eddie Howe’s XI going into the second half of the season.
