Newcastle fans desperate for King arrival

According to The Sun, Newcastle United want to sign Bournemouth forward Josh King in this summer’s transfer window.

Magpies boss Rafael Benitez is expected to be in the market for at least one new striker at the end of the 2017-18 campaign.

King managed 16 Premier League goals for Bournemouth last season, and has netted seven times in 31 appearances for the Cherries in all competitions this term.

The former Manchester United youngster is believed to be on the radar of a number of clubs, but according to The Sun, Newcastle are prepared to pay £20m to land him this summer.

It would be fair to say that the Newcastle supporters are excited about the potential move, with a number calling on their club to bring the Norway international to St James’ Park.

King’s pace and power would be the ideal fit for Rafael Benitez’s side, who have impressively won four of their last five Premier League matches, and the Newcastle fans are very keen indeed.
