Newcastle fans divided by Charlie Austin links

Lots of Newcastle fans are reacting to the latest striker links, as the Magpies have been offered the chance to sign Charlie Austin.

The Shields Gazette claim that Newcastle are set to go on somewhat of a spending spree after the capture of Joelinton, targeting a winger, left-back and striker.

Of course, the departures of Joselu, Salomon Rondon and Ayoze Perez mean the Magpies are short of options up front even after Joelinton’s arrival on Tuesday.

And, according to The Chronicle, they have been offered the chance to sign Austin from Southampton.

The report says the 30 year-old’s situation with the Saints is “clear-cut” after a fallout with boss Ralph Hasenhuttl, but he is “only one name on a lengthy list” of targets that Steve Bruce and Lee Charnley are going through.

Fans have been discussing the move, and it seems a pretty even split.

Some obviously remember that epic 2014/15 campaign, when he scored 18 Premier League goals for a rather poor QPR side, while others are concerned about moving for a player who scored just twice in 25 league showings last term.

Either way, you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
