Loads of Newcastle fans have been reacting to Friday’s big transfer rumour, as reports claim they are eyeing Nottingham Forest sensation Joe Lolley.
According to The Mirror (16:42), Newcastle and Fulham are both eyeing a move for Lolley, who scored one and assisted four in Forest’s incredible 5-5 draw against Aston Villa on Wednesday.
The 26 year-old joined Aitor Karanka’s side for just £450,000 back in January, and has found some superb form this season, scoring seven goals in all competitions.

The report claims Forest want to keep the versatile attacker, but their hand could be forced by the fact that brought in a whopping 17 players this summer.
Newcastle of course have struggled to create chances and score goals all season, although they have won their last three matches.
Ayoze Perez in particular has had a poor start to the campaign, and Lolley’s end product is far superior to the Spaniard.

There you go, none of these Almiron to sign for 25M links nonsense. This is more Ashley’s standard.

he got 4 assists and a goal in the game against villa which make hsinumbers look better to be fair. that said depending on the price could be a good acquisition. maybe not quick enough to attack how rafa wants us to attack though
