The Newcastle United fans who are gathered around the pool table in The Transfer Tavern this evening, are discussing reports linking one of their players with a move away from the club this summer.
Football Italia is reporting that midfielder Florian Thauvin is being linked with a move to Italy with Serie A giants Inter Milan.
It is thought that the midfielder is the next target for Inter boss Roberto Mancini, should he fail in his bid to snare Antonio Candreva from Lazio this summer.
Thauvin has failed to impress during his time on Tyneside and has been sent out on loan to French side Marseille as the club appear to have lost patience.
Thauvin has been a major let down since joining the club for £13 million last summer, and although he has not played under Benitez it appears as though his time at the club could be coming to an end.
The Newcastle fans in The Tavern are not overly concerned that Thauvin could be on his way, and think the club should cut their losses and let him go if the right offer comes in.
Our resident landlord here in the Tavern feels Thauvin is a player that has been under-appreciated at the club, and argues that he should be given a chance at the club next season!
Newcastle fans…. What do you make of this news? Has Thauvin got a future at Newcastle? Let us know below!
