Revealed: 74% of Newcastle fans want Juventus outcast Pjaca

Loads of Newcastle fans have been discussing making a move for World Cup finalist Marko Pjaca, and 74 per cent of fans would rather sign him than Andros Townsend.

While Mike Ashley is showing no signs of splashing the cash at the moment, Newcastle are expected to bring in some new firepower up front this summer.

Matt Ritchie has been linked with a move away, and although the Scotsman is staying put for now, the Magpies have eyed Crystal Palace’s Townsend as a possible replacement.

One man they should also be looking at though is Juventus’ Pjaca, who is expected to leave the Italian giants after being pushed further down the pecking order by the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo.

The 23 year-old was reportedly offered to Liverpool recently for £22m, which is only slightly more than Townsend would cost, and he has a similar play style to the electric Ivan Perisic.

Pjaca is fast, direct, agile and extremely powerful. He showed a good eye for a goal as a youngster, and despite regressing slightly since his big move to Juventus a whopping 74 per cent of fans would rather sign him than Townsend.
