A large number of Newcastle United fans have been drawn to the latest transfer update on Twitter regarding Hugo Ekitike. 

According to Sky Sports, it is believed the Toon’s informal offer for the 19-year-old is unlikely to be accepted by Ligue 1 side Reims.

Could Hugo Ekitike save NUFC from relegation?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Other reports have suggested the Magpies may face competition from other Premier League clubs, with Brighton & Hove Albion and Brentford both believed to be interested.

With only one new arrival through the doors at St. James’ Park so far this month, these fans shared their frustrations on Twitter when this potential setback in their battle against relegation was revealed.

What did these Newcastle fans have to say?

“we’re a joke”

“Hammond undercutting again.”
“Why not, just pay the fee the clubs wants”
“Get Lee Charnley back.”
“the pain doesn’t end”
“Another club trying to start some sort of bidding war is getting boring now.”

With some fans not too impressed with the approach for Ekitike in the first place, it seems as though supporters are just desperate for arrivals in the attacking department at Newcastle, based on these latest reactions.

The young striker has made an impressive start to the 2021/22 campaign with eight goals and three assists in his 17 Ligue 1 appearances (via Transfermarkt).

And with just a matter of days until Newcastle take to the field again in the Premier League, they remain without their main goal threat in Callum Wilson through injury and no reliable replacement.
