Alan Sharer is a legend at Newcastle United and he has a great influence in English football still, with his appearances on Match of the Day and his column in The Sun, and he’s one of the best strikers England ever produced.
Alan Shearer – Newcastle United legend
So it’s good to see Alan via his new Twitter account asking our top striker target – QPR’s Charlie Austin – if he would consider joining Newcastle United.
This is what Alan tweeted:
Why don’t you come up here and try?! #9 https://t.co/xcQTYE1E83

And would you believe it, Charlie tweeted this back:
Well at least Charlie could try.

Charlie would be a great signing for Newcastle, and it would be good to get one of our top targets over the line shortly, since we seemed to have missed out on Danny Ings of Burnley, Aleksandar Mitrovic of Anderlecht and Andre Ayew of Marseilles.
Here’s Charlie’s Twitter account if you want to send him a message.
