Newcastle fans debate Areola transfer rumour

According to France Football, Newcastle United are interested in signing Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper Alphonse Areola in this summer’s transfer window.

The Magpies reportedly have the option to acquire the services of Martin Dubravka on a permanent deal from Sparta Prague this summer.

Dubravka impressed in the second half of the 2017-18 campaign, but it is understood that Areola is emerging as Newcastle’s leading transfer target, with head coach Rafael Benitez already holding discussions with the Frenchman.

The Newcastle fans have been reacting to the transfer report, and it would be fair to say that many want Dubravka to sign instead of Areola.

Dubravka, who is extremely popular with the Newcastle supporters, would surely cost significantly less than Areola this summer.

That said, the PSG goalkeeper is a title winner with Champions League experience, and they do not exactly grow on trees. It is a bit of a dilemma, but the Newcastle fans seem pretty clear on the situation.
