Another day goes by without the prospective takeover being completed at Newcastle United.
It feels like this saga has been going on since time began – yet it seems we are no closer to having confirmation that Mike Ashley is out of the door for good at St. James’ Park.
If the completion of the takeover does take place, though, it would likely see the Toon become a financial powerhouse not only in the Premier League, but in Europe as well. In anticipation of those potential fresh new funds, the Magpies have been linked with a whole host of talent.
One of those linked whose potential move to Newcastle does not depend on the takeover is Odsonne Edouard. According to The Chronicle, the £12.15m-valued striker, as per Transfermarkt, could make the switch to the north of England no matter if the club changes hands or not.
Would you like Odsonne Edouard at Newcastle?
With 27 goals and 19 assists in all competitions before the Scottish season was brought to a premature end, he is a proven goalscorer, and the Toon fans have been reacting to this latest speculation. They have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts, and you can see some of the best comments from the social media platform below.
Yes please! Exactly what we need

Not a chance he would come if Ashley is still here. No ambition, no chance.

I am against this signing for some reason. He just doesn’t catch my eye, Jonathan Davids for me all day long.
