Newcastle fans react as Steve Howey suggests Toon should sign Erling Haaland

Steve Howey has claimed Newcastle United should consider a move to sign Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland this summer if financially possible – and Toon supporters have reacted on Twitter.

Haaland, 19, has been in stunning form this season and even continued his unbelievable strike rate since moving to Dortmund from Redbull Salzburg in the January window. Indeed, Haaland has scored 40 goals in 33 outings this season for both clubs.

Meanwhile, Newcastle’s prospective takeover is getting closer to completion. A deposit has been paid and it is believed the Premier League’s owner checks have reached the advanced stages, with no hiccup as of yet.

Such talk has seen enormous speculation over who Newcastle could sign, and indeed, who could replace Steve Bruce. During and interview with Newcastle supporter Steve Wraith, Howey suggested Haaland as a potential signing.

“A centre-forward,” Howey responded, when asked who Newcastle should sign. “But it depends on the kind of money you’re talking about. We could sign the likes of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, if backed.

“I’ll tell you who is good, and I know his Dad. Erling Haaland,” Howey continued on Wraith’s Instagram. “We could have signed Haaland for less than we paid for Joelinton.”

Newcastle desperately need a striker. Joelinton was bought for big money last summer, but has scored just one goal for the Toon in the Premier League. Indeed, the club-record signing needs replacing.

So, could Newcastle sign Haaland? Well, Newcastle supporters have reacted on Twitter to Howey’s comments with many desperate to see the teenage centre-forward in black and white stripes. He would cost £65million, with SportBild stating that is how much his release clause form was.
