Newcastle fans react as club reportedly battling Benitez for Champions League star

Newcastle United have reportedly thrown their hat into the ring for Juventus midfielder Aaron Ramsey – and Toon fans are excited.

Ramsey, 30, is struggling for consistent game time at Juventus – in what is his third season with the club. He has started just 34 of 69 Juve outings.

In that time, the 67-time Wales ace has scored just six goals. A stark contrast to his Arsenal form, in which he had a hand in 130 goals in his 371 games.

A report from CalcioMercato states that Juve are desperate to offload Ramsey. That is because of his enormous £115,000-a-week wages.

It is believed the ex-Cardiff man is in favour of a return to the Premier League – and Newcastle’s new owners are ready to offer him that.

What are Newcastle fans saying, as they battle Benitez for Ramsey?

The Toon need a big-name signing. As is with the way with a takeover, fans are beginning to get excited and big-calibre additions are order of the day.

Should Newcastle adhere to fans urging their club to sign certain players – no matter the cost? Well, they should have a plan in place to build.

But one thing is for sure. If Newcastle do not sign a player that excites the fanbase in January, then fans will be underwhelmed. Ramsey is ideal.

A deal easy to do given Juve’s willingness to sell and Ramsey’s desire to move, the owners could please Newcastle fans with a flick of a wrist.

Newcastle fans, certainly, want Ramsey after hearing the rumours.
