According to The Chronicle, Augsburg defender Philipp Max has emerged as a potential target for Newcastle United in this summer’s transfer window.
It might have been a turbulent summer at St James’ Park with Rafael Benitez moving on, but the club are currently making moves in the market.
According to The Chronicle, Max has been offered to the Magpies in an £18m deal.
Barcelona and Liverpool have also recently been linked with a move for the 25-year-old, who has been with Augsburg since 2015.
The left-back is yet to win a senior cap for Germany, although he was a part of the team that won a silver medal at the 2016 Olympics.
The Newcastle fans have been on social media offering their views on the report.
And a number are keen for their club to secure a deal for Max ahead of the start of the new Premier League campaign.
A selection of the Twitter reaction to the report can be seen below:
Good player. Played in the pre-season friendly at SJP last season from what I remember. Very good crosser and dead ball specialist

Another player mentioned by @MsiDouglas is Philipp Max. He would tick every box for me. Had a poor season, but he’s a flying wing-back, very creative, great crosser of the ball. Small and tenacious, takes set pieces. Reminds me of Ritchie last year. Big clubs are watching him.
