Newcastle fans react to Victor Osimhen links

Newcastle United reportedly want Lille striker Victor Osimhen to add firepower to the ranks.

Steve Bruce wants a new striker in the January transfer window and Osimhen is on the radar, according to The Chronicle. Lille only just signed Osimhen for £10.8m but he is already being linked with a move to England.

Newcastle have only scored five goals in the league this season and need a new striker. Joelinton was a big-money purchase in the summer but he has only scored once so far. Andy Carroll and Dwight Gayle have both been injured and have failed to score yet.

Osimhen, on the other hand, is scoring freely in France. With seven goals and two assists in 10 Ligue 1 matches, the Nigeria international is making an impression. He also scored against Chelsea in the Champions League.

The 20-year-old is considered an exciting talent and he netted 20 times in just 36 games for Charleroi before joining Lille. But Newcastle fans are concerned that he is another unproven player in the Premier League.

Here are some tweets from Newcastle supporters reacting to this transfer rumour.
