Newcastle United fans react on Twitter to Olivier Kemen to AC Milan links

The young Frenchman has recently shone for his country and is a wanted commodity.

Newcastle United fans are, by and large, impressed and satisfied with the business done by the club this summer so far. The recent arrivals of Georginio Wijnaldum and Alexsandar Mitrovic represent a true show of intent from The Toon.

However, one transfer rumour not impressing them is that linking Olivier Kemen with a move away from the club.

L’Equipe reported this week that AC Milan were in talks with his agent and that Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool were also keen on the young Frenchman.

It comes after he impressed as captain of the French under-19 side at the recent UEFA European Under-19 Championships in Greece, where Les Bleus made it to the semi-finals.

The Cameroon born midfielder is highly rated among the fans at St James' Park but is yet to get a chance in the first-team since his move from FC Metz in July 2013.

Fans have taken to Twitter to generally rally around the idea of keeping Kemen who they feel could go on to become a stalwart of the Newcastle team for years to come.

One fan even went as far to say that Newcastle would regret his departure in a similar fashion to Manchester United fans sense of remorse over Paul Pogba.

Here is some of the best reaction from Twitter…
