£60m player Newcastle reportedly want now ‘likes’ Instagram post about Trippier joining the Magpies

Newcastle United are closing in on their first signing of the Saudi PIF / PCP Capital Partners era.

The Magpies are reportedly on the verge of signing Kieran Trippier in a £12million deal from Atletico Madrid.

And some eagle-eyed Newcastle fans have spotted another target appearing to “like” Trippier’s imminent arrival.

Alongside Trippier, Sven Botman has been heavily linked with a move to St James’ Park.

DROGBA DID WORSE THAN LUKAKU

Earlier this week, Fabrizio Romano claimed that Newcastle had made a bid for the Lille ace.

However, the defending Ligue 1 champions apparently rejected Newcastle’s offer.

Romano subsequently claimed that the Magpies they will launch a second bid in the coming days.

Football site 433 shared a post on Instagram on Tuesday evening, outlining the agreement reached between the Magpies and Atletico.

More than a million account liked the post, and among these was “svenbotman_”, the £60m-rated Lille player’s official Instagram account.

In December, Trippier liked a Newcastle-related Instagram post on Sport Bible, as per Chronicle Live.

Now, Botman appears to have repeated the trick and has got Toon fans talking.

Will the outcome be the same for Botman as it is for Trippier – soon donning the black-and-white stripes?

Botman is a “top player”, as Jose Fonte told talkSPORT last year – and he’d certainly be a hit on Tyneside.
