Loads of Newcastle fans have been reacting to the latest transfer news, as the Magpies are reportedly planning to swoop for Ryan Fraser.
According to The Daily Record, Newcastle will battle Arsenal to sign Fraser this summer.
The Scottish international, capped six times by his country, is about to enter the last year of his contract, meaning Bournemouth risk losing him for free if they do not cash in this summer.
According to the aforementioned report, Arsenal are plotting a £20m bid for the winger while the Magpies take a different approach, hoping to use Matt Ritchie as “bait” in a player-plus-cash deal.
Fans don’t seem too convinced though, and it’s not hard to see why. Fraser has been sensational for the Cherries this campaign, grabbing seven goals and 11 assists in all competitions, but he is nowhere nears as versatile as Ritchie, who regularly helps his manager by filling in at left back.
You can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below, where it’s safe to say the Toon Army are taking a rather cynical approach to this one…
Will never happen

It’s a moot point if he would cost actual money. Might as well ask if you’d like Messi @NUFC
