Newcastle Untied are preparing for what will turn out to be a crucial transfer window as they look to secure Premier League football next season.
The Toon army have already started by acquiring Kieran Trippier and are now turning their attentions to a central defender. A deal for Diego Carlos from Sevilla could be concluded this weekend, with the Magpies also looking at reaching an agreement with Lille for Sven Botman as well.
Who would be better for Newcastle?
With the potential of two new central defenders coming into the club, the fans were delighted. When NUFC360 relayed the Telegraph’s news that the deal was ‘gathering pace’ they flocked to the comments to celebrate.
What the Newcastle fans said about the Diego Carlos update
“We really upgrading our whole back line lol.” @agbnufc_
“When was the last time we got excited for a Jan window?” @Forever_JP92
“80m basically on two defenders, sheesh.” @GeordieKyle
“Genuinely never been happier if true. Haven’t been this excited since we came 5th.” @JakeNUFC__
“Our defence is gonna be disgusting.” @bennufc_18
“This is class wouldn’t want anything to do with digne if he ain’t giving 100%” @SpencerCollie1
Signing Carlos would be a huge statement of intent from Newcastle, the defender is valued on TransferMarkt at £40 million. The fact that the rumoured fee is 30-35 million euros shows how Newcastle are going about their business efficiently despite the extortionate wealth of the owners.
The fans are clearly ecstatic at the news and why wouldn’t they be? They’re looking at making it three defenders through the door, all of which have featured in the Champions League this season. That’s a massive upgrade for the Toon.
