Newcastle fans react to Jullien speculation

According to Yahoo Sport France, Newcastle United are interested in signing Toulouse defender Christopher Jullien in this summer’s transfer window.

Newcastle boss Rafael Benitez is still believed to be unclear what type of transfer budget he has to spend this summer, but preparations for the new campaign are underway.

Benitez is believed to want at least one new centre-back this summer, and according to Yahoo Sport France, could battle Southampton for the services of Jullien.

The 25-year-old started his professional career with Auxerre, but has been with Toulouse since 2016, and has made 73 appearances for the French club – scoring seven times.

The former France Under-20 international stands at an impressive 6ft 5in, meanwhile, and has the potential to be a serious force in the Premier League.

The Newcastle fans have caught wind of the transfer speculation on social media, and have been reacting to the news.

That said, it seems that a number of the club’s supporters are finding it hard to believe that their club will be able to get this deal over the line.
