Newcastle United: Fans mock Joelinton while discussing links with Karl Toko Ekambi

Responding to a scout report from the Chronicle, Newcastle United supporters have been in full discussion over the latest link with prolific forward Karl Toko Ekambi – going on to describe how anyone could be better than Joelinton at this point in time. 

Ekambi, according to the Chronicle’s scout file on Twitter, has scored 24 goals for La Liga club Villarreal since he arrived at the club back in June 2018 – prompting speculation (per Le10 Sport) that the Magpies could be looking to offer him a dream Premier League move.

Steve Bruce’s side have faced a goalscoring conundrum up front this campaign, with out and out strikers Joelinton and Andy Carroll finding the net just once between them. Now, with this scout report emerging on social media, fans have flocked to roast Joelinton and insist that they are up for any alternative to the £40 million ‘useless flop‘ – potentially indicating an interest in Ekambi to replace the Brazilian up front.

While Joelinton and Andy Carroll both possess a far superior aerial duel success rate per game (WhoScored.com), the Cameroonian forward has averaged more shots in that time – perhaps highlighting a sharper attacking threat.

Here’s how they responded to the rumour on Twitter.
