Revealed: 79% of Newcastle fans want to smash their transfer record on Haller

Loads of Newcastle fans have been giving their verdict on the week’s big transfer news, and 79 per cent of fans love Rafael Benitez’s number one January target.

According to The Northern Echo, Sebastien Haller is at the top of Benitez’s January shopping list.

The towering striker has been in sensational form for Eintracht Frankfurt this season, and the Magpies will have to break their transfer record to sign him.

According to Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Eintracht Frankfurt want up to €30million (£26m) for the 24 year-old.

While fans may not be too confident of Mike Ashley spending that sort of money, it would be money well spent if he did pull the trigger.

The 6 ft 3 in Frenchman, who scored 13 times in 20 appearances for his country’s Under-21 side, has grabbed nine goals and seven assists already this season.

Very few players join the ten goals, ten assist club each season, and Haller is on track to smash that barrier well before Christmas.
