Newcastle fans react to Lascelles exit talk

According to The Independent, Liverpool want to sign Newcastle United captain Jamaal Lascelles in this summer’s transfer window.

Lascelles, who has also been linked with Chelsea, impressed for Newcastle during the 2017-18 campaign.

The centre-back was seen as an outside bet to make the England squad for the 2018 World Cup, but was somewhat surprisingly overlooked by Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate.

There is no question that Lascelles is making strides forward, and it is not a surprise to see top-four clubs being linked with the 24-year-old at this stage of his career.

The Newcastle fans have been reacting to the transfers rumours, and it seems that the bulk are desperate for Lascelles to stay with the club this summer.

That said, the general consensus is that Lascelles should be allowed to leave if Liverpool match the £75m that they paid Southampton for Netherlands centre-back Virgil van Dijk during the January transfer window.
