Newcastle United fans have been reacting to claims surrounding a potential move for Diego Carlos during the January transfer window.

The defence has arguably been Newcastle’s biggest weakness this season, with only bottom club Norwich City conceding more goals than them so far during the campaign.

They managed to address part of those concerns with the signing of Kieran Trippier last week, but more work needs to be done if they are to put up a decent fight when it comes to staying in the Premier League.

Can you name who scored the most league goals for Newcastle United in years gone by? Let's see if you can starting with 2020/21

To that end, one of the players that they have targeted has been Sevilla defender Carlos, with The Athletic noting last week that they had already had a bid turned down for the 28-year-old. However, it appears as though Newcastle will not be deterred, as according to TalkSport’s Alex Crook, the club have submitted a second bid for him – this one coming in at £28m.

The news was relayed to Newcastle United fans via @NUFC360 on Twitter for them to react to, where it generated some interesting responses, with many supporters excited:

“We’re building a superteam for the efl championship”
“Got a feeling it’s going to take £30mill+ (and Kounde not to be injured) but fingers crossed”
“Type of player we need”
“On my knees”
“Bring him in asap”
“W”

Will Howe keep Newcastle up?

Yes!

Yes!

No!

No!

We’ll just have to wait and see, but hopefully Newcastle can sort something out before it’s too late, because they need to get players in sooner rather than later in their attempts to avoid relegation.
