Newcastle United are reportedly in ‘advanced’ talks to sign Napoli winger Hirving Lozano this summer after a difficult first campaign in the Serie A – and Newcastle supporters have reacted on Twitter to the reported news.
Lozano, 24, joined Napoli last summer after netting an impressive 40 goals in 79 games for PSV Eindhoven. However, following his £45million move, Lozano has struggled to recreate his best form in the sky blue of Napoli.
Indeed, the Mexico international has netted just three times in 22 appearances for the Serie A side. Gennaro Gattuso is completely aware that the club are likely to sell Lozano – and for a figure much smaller than what they paid for him.
Newcastle have jumped to the front of the queue and according to Todo Fichajes, the Toon are in ‘advanced’ talks to complete a deal for a player that scored against Germany in a 1-0 win for the Mexicans at the last World Cup.
At his best, Lozano is a fine player. But Gennaro Gattuso is clearly not a fan of the player, being quoted by Spanish newspaper AS back in February before a Champions League clash against Barcelona: “I have no space for him in my team.”
Newcastle supporters have reacted on Twitter to the reported news that their club could be interested in signing a player like Lozano, and many are desperate to see the Mexican magician pull on a Toon shirt next season.
if we did get bought, he could be the perfect player to play on the right side if we stick with a 4-2-3-1
