Loads of Newcastle fans have been reacting to the latest transfer rumour, as reports claim Eintracht Frankfurt want up £26m for Sebastien Haller.
According to Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, the Bundesliga outfit expect around €30m for their prized possession, as both Newcastle and Tottenham show interest.
The Northern Echo recently claimed Haller is Rafael Benitez’s number one January target, and the towering French striker looks set to become one of Europe’s great strikers.
He has scored nine goals in all competitions this season, more than the entire Newcastle squad, and he has also added seven assists.
The Magpies added Salomon Rondon and Yoshinori Muto in the summer, but neither of them have had the desired impact, scoring just one goal each so far.
Of course, fans are extremely suspicious of any transfer rumour that exceeds the club’s transfer record of just £16m, and that is reflected in the Twitter reactions down below…
Might sound ridiculous but €20m sounds doable, even by #NUFC standards. Anything nearer to €30m is unlikely though

If I recall correctly, Haller was a target prior to signing for Frankfurt. May be wrong but I believe he turned us down because we’d been relegated. Doubt we’re an overly appealing option at present either.

Oh well that’s us out of the running??

20-30m you say? Mike Ashley doesn’t keep himself in clown’s denim jeans by spending that kind of money on football players.

Re. Sebastien Haller – When he was linked with us in 2016, he didn’t want to leave Utrecht. He then joined Frankfurt a year later, where he felt it was better for his development. Premier League was “too soon”. And so far, so good for him. Third time’s the charm? #NUFC
