Ademola Lookman: Newcastle United face competition for January transfer

RB Leipzig’s Ademola Lookman has emerged as a target for Newcastle United of late as they look to bring more firepower in over the course of the transfer window. 

Sky Sports suggested the former Everton man – who only moved to Germany on a permanent basis during the summer – was in line to be the subject of a loan bid with an option to buy at the end of it after the Magpies made signing a winger a priority. Upon his initial journey to the Bundesliga in 2018 on a temporary basis, the former Charlton youngster averaged more shots (2.3, via WhoScored) per game than any of the Toon squad are this season, so has shown he can offer an attacking threat.

However, Lee Ryder took to Twitter to update fans on the matter. While the Chronicle journalist did report that an offer was in place to try and bring the 22-year-old back to England, Newcastle aren’t said to be the only club on these shores to be interested, as well as some European outfits.

With that in mind, here’s a look at how sections of the Newcastle support reacted online.
