Newcastle fans have been discussing a possible summer swoop for Everton’s Ademola Lookman, and fans are completely split on a move.
Everton have been linked with several wingers in recent weeks, with the most recent reports suggesting they could rival several teams for Gelson Martins.
The Toffees have also been linked with Mario Gotze this week, so it’s clear Marco Silva wants some fresh blood in attack.
The Portuguese tactician takes over at Goodison with the weight of the world on his shoulders, as fans are desperate for exciting, attacking football after escaping the clutches of Sam Allardyce.
Newcastle are themselves after some new attacking talent, and Lookman would be a perfect fit.

The Everton youngster was brilliant on loan with Red Bull Leipzig last season, grabbing five goals and four assists in 11 Bundesliga appearances, and could be the perfect alternative to the pricey Kenedy.
A loan move within the Premier League could be perfect for his development, and the Magpies would get a hungry, exciting talent, while also saving money to splash out on the marquee number nine that Benitez so desperately craves.
Newcastle fans are completely split on a move for the 20 year-old, who is valued at £10.8m by Transfermarkt, as just 57 per cent said they should make a move.
