Newcastle United fans react on Twitter to Saido Berahino transfer talk

Saido Berahino

Newcastle United have been linked with a shock move for Saido Berahino.

Newcastle United have made a big money offer for West Brom striker Saido Berahino, report The Mail, who claim the bid is £18 million.

The offer gives the Baggies food for thought regarding a player who has been a headache this season, since the club blocked his move to Tottenham Hotspur in the summer.

He has netted just three league goals, also scoring in the FA Cup at the weekend against Bristol City.

If he can get back to showing the sort of form he did last season for West Brom then he would be a well worthwhile addition for Newcastle, who are yet to see forwards Aleksandar Mitrovic or Ayoze Perez produce consistently.

Berahino is not a guaranteed success by any means, with his attitude questionable, whether he is what the club need behind the scenes in the midst of a relegation battle, is a real question mark.

To be spending £18 million on Berahino would be putting all their eggs in one basket, it could be a masterstroke, or it may turn out to be a disaster.

Here is a look at how Newcastle fans have reacted on Twitter to the potential deal...
