Would be a good signing: Newcastle fans urge their club to sign Laxalt this summer

According to Chronicle Live, Newcastle United will be given the opportunity to sign AC Milan defender Diego Laxalt at the end of the 2018-19 campaign.

Laxalt has made 28 appearances for Milan this season, but it is being reported that the Uruguay international will be available this summer.

The Newcastle fans have been on social media commenting on the transfer speculation, and it would be fair to say that a number are desperate for their club to bring the South American to St James’ Park.

It remains to be seen what type of budget the Magpies will have this summer, but Laxalt could well be available for a cut-price fee having struggled to hold down a regular spot at the San Siro this term.

Left-back is an area that the Premier League outfit are seemingly looking at ahead of this summer’s transfer window, with Matt Ritchie often filling in at left-back or left wing-back in recent times.

And the club’s supporters are hopeful that Laxalt makes the move.
