Newcastle United fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to give their reaction to reports linking the club with a move for Xherdan Shaqiri.
Switzerland international winger Shaqiri is on the books of Italian giants Inter Milan at the moment, but he has been linked with a move away from the San Siro this summer.
Newcastle fans, though, seem to believe that the club should make a move for the former Bayern Munich winger, who moved to Inter only in the January transfer window.
The 23-year-old’s growth and development as a footballer has been stunted over the past few years, but he remains a supremely talented footballer who is hugely creative.
Below are some of the comments Newcastle fans have been leaving on Twitter in reaction to the Shaqiri reports.
If shaqiri is available go get him!! He's a great talent! #nufc him plus another centre/left back would do me nicely— Leigh Carter (@leighsamagpie) July 27, 2015
It has been confirmed Newcastle United are not in the hunt for Xherdan Shaqiri. It was good while it lasted, #NUFC— DareToAyoze (@DareToAyoze) July 27, 2015
I'd rather spend £15m on Shaqiri than Austin. We need creators. We could easily Just play Siem De Jong as a striker instead. #nufc— Lewis Turner (@lewy7) July 27, 2015
shaqiri for 12m or townsend for 15 shaqiri for me on his day he can win games by his self which is what we need a game changer #NUFC— Paul Shiels_nufc (@PaulShiels_nufc) July 26, 2015
I give us a 5% chance of signing Shaqiri. But just imagine.....Imagine. #NUFC— JOSH (@JoshDWReeve) July 25, 2015
