Newcastle United fans appear divided over rumours linking them with Maximilian Philipp of Borussia Dortmund.
The Magpies only have a limited budget, and Philipp could now reportedly be a value for money option.
But Newcastle fans are not all pleased with the idea of going after the striker.
While some Magpies supporters feel he has a lot to offer, others think he would not be a worthwhile addition.
Out of favour and never scored 10 goals in a season. Sounds just the type of striker #NUFC like to sign.— Brian Glaister (@BGlaister1) January 12, 2019
Mitro, Gayle & Armstrong all in double figures at least two seasons!!!

For anyone wondering who Maximilian Philipp is, he’s the guy that’s missed 4 sitters in the first 45 minutes of the Dortmund match currently being played. #NUFC— Steve Darrah (@Darrah88) January 11, 2019
Philipp has scored just one this season for Dortmund in the league, and he has barely been used as a starter.
The German has previously proven to be a good option in the Bundesliga though.
If Philipp was to move to Newcastle he would be in competition with Salomon Rondon for a starting place.
