Lots of Newcastle United fans have flocked to Twitter to share their thoughts on Fabrizio Romano’s latest update on Sven Botman. 

According to the Italian insider, the Toon have seen a €35m (£29.2m) bid for the Dutch centre-back rejected by Lille, despite being in a ‘difficult’ financial position.

Would Botman transform the NUFC defence?





However, the report also suggests this will not be the end of Newcastle’s pursuit of the 21-year-old, as Romano expects Eddie Howe’s club to make another offer to the Ligue 1 side.

And it seems with a wealth of experience already under the youngster’s belt, these fans feel optimistic Botman could turn around the Toon’s horrific defensive record.

What did these Newcastle fans have to say?

““Newcastle will try again” after having a 35 million bid rejected ! .. the future is so exciting man !!!”

“doesn’t feel real”
This is incredible! Not just are we bidding for players in the 1st few days of the window, @FabrizioRomano
also says we will try again. If we get Botman aswel as Trippier that would be amazing”
“Still find it mental we’re bidding for more than 1 player at the same time”
“we’re actually making big moves tho this is really promising”
“£35 million. This doesn’t feel real loool”

Injuries aside, the Dutch defender has been a regular in the Lille side this season having played every minute throughout his 12 appearances in the French top flight (via Transfermarkt).

Although their initial bid has been rejected by Lille, it seems these Toon fans are encouraged by the club’s reported newfound lease of life in the transfer market.
