Newcastle fans react as club reportedly battling Liverpool and Manchester City for midfielder

Newcastle have reportedly joined the race to sign Monaco talent Aurelien Tchouameni – and Toon fans are all for the signing of the Frenchman.

The 21-year-old is earning rave reviews for his performances in French football. Joining Monaco from Bordeaux, he has already played 65 times.

Involved in nine goals from the middle of the park, his form has earned him a place in France’s senior side – already becoming an established member.

Previous reports from TuttoJuve say Monaco has informed both Liverpool and Manchester City that Tchouameni would cost them £42million.

However, Chelsea are said to be leading the charge for Tchouameni – as they are willing to go north of £50million to get the midfielder.

Newcastle fans have reacted on Twitter to reports that the Toon want to sign Tchouameni to improve Eddie Howe’s midfield options.
