Newcastle United have set their sights on signing Aston Villa midfielder Marvelous Nakamba in January, according to Football Insider.
And, as to be expected, a number of Villa fans have been giving their thoughts to the rumours on social media.
Football Insider shared a story on Monday after being informed by a Newcastle source, claiming the Magpies have identified Nakamba as a target due to his energy and drive.
Should Villa sell Nakamba?
No, keep him
It is expected to take an offer of £15m for Villa to part ways with the 27-year-old, who has been in and out of Dean Smith’s side this season.
Nakamba has made just one Premier League start during the current campaign and it seems as if he could make the move north in the New Year.
Villa fans react
@AVFC_News shared a Newcastle fan reaction to the links on Tuesday morning, asking Villa fans if the club should part ways with the defensive midfielder.
This is what they had to say in reply, with many happy to let him go in January.
“Definitely, he’s OK but not what we need. Take the money and then upgrade in the summer. Luiz as backup is then an upgrade. That’s how you improve as a squad.”
“Yes all day”
“Yes sell him and El Ghazi for a combined £30m+ and use that to sign a top centre midfielder”
“He’s a solid enough squad player but £15m seems like good business, so if the lad is happy to go then, yeah”
“I’ll start the engine”
