Some Newcastle United fans have slammed a claim from former Arsenal player now pundit Paul Merson that the Tyneside club should buy Jack Grealish in the summer transfer window.
He says that the Toon do not have enough brave footballers, and when he played he would try and keep the supporters quiet. Merson added that the £27.45 million-valued ace would tick the boxes, as he would entertain and get on the ball.
Indeed, Grealish is enjoying a relatively decent season despite Aston Villa lying in the relegation zone at the moment. The 24-year old has scored nine goals and made eight assists in 31 appearances in all competitions, as per Transfermarkt.
Nevertheless, these NUFC fans slammed Merson’s view and are not keen on Grealish:

Wouldn’t go near him.. hes not really what the team needs straight off…he plays in an area we’re strongest, john mcginn on the other hand…
Need a striker, a RW, a CM and a RB first off, enough with signing players that like to drift in or out to and from the left

He’s a decent enough player but there’s something about him that compels me to dislike him.. I’d prefer McGinn out of that Villa side
