Loads of Newcastle fans have been reacting to the latest transfer news, as reports claim they are eyeing a move for Francesco Vicari.
According to Calciomercato, Rafael Benitez is eyeing a move for the SPAL defender, as he looks to strengthen his squad in January.
The 24-year-old centre back has racked up nearly 100 appearances for SPAL, who earned promotion to the Italian top flight in 2017.
Vicari is in fantastic form this season, averaging 1.4 tackles, 1.9 interceptions and 4.9 clearances per game.

However, Newcastle fans aren’t too happy about the transfer link, mainly due to the fact that their biggest problem is at the other end of the pitch.
The Magpies have played some of the toughest fixtures of the season already and managed to hold reasonably firm at the back, but have scored just six goals in nine games.
Benitez gets a lot of love from the Toon Army, but some have just started to turn on the Spaniard in recent weeks, and they’re not at all happy with this latest link.
