According to Corriere dello Sport, via Sports Witness, Newcastle United are considering a swoop for Club Brugge forward Wesley Moraes in this summer’s transfer window.
And the Newcastle fans have taken to social media to react to the transfer claim.
Moraes is a Brazilian forward who has spent the last three years with Club Brugge in Belgium.
The 22-year-old has scored 38 goals in 130 appearances for his current club in all competitions, including twice in 11 Champions League fixtures.
Corriere dello Sport have claimed that West Ham United and Lazio are also both considering a swoop for Moraes ahead of the 2019-2020 campaign.

The striker stands at 6 ft 3 and would therefore bring a presence to the Newcastle attack should the Magpies complete a deal this summer.
The Premier League club’s fans have been on Twitter offering their views and whilst some have welcomed the potential deal, others are not so sure for a number of reasons.
A selection of the Twitter reaction can be seen below:
