Newcastle fans in the Transfer Tavern haven’t had a moment to catch their breath this summer- it’s been a busy one!
And with the news from the Telegraph that Rafa Benitez is targeting a move for Anderlecht striker Idrissa Sylla, it could prove to remain busy right until the end of the transfer window.
The Magpies endured a tricky start to the campaign, falling 1-0 at Craven Cottage to a Fulham side they were expected to beat with some supporters still feeling the squad needs to be stronger, if Rafa’s side are targeting an instant return to the Premier League.
As for Sylla, he is a 6ft 2″ striker who is more commonly referred to as “Waddle”, because of his similarity of playing style to England legend Chris.
Newcastle have already added Dwight Gayle to their striking ranks this summer and also has Aleksander Mitrovic and Ayoze Perez to call upon but Sylla would be a strong fourth striking option for the Toon Army.
So, Newcastle fans, would you welcome a move for the new Waddle? Let us know your thoughts below!
