Looking at the comments of Newcastle fans and on Twitter, the famous Toon Army thinks that Lucas Perez would be a fantastic signing for us.
This lad has a terrific left foot and scored some excellent goals for Arsenal last season even though he hardly played.
And for just over £13M surely Newcastle can afford this player who would help solve our goalscoring problem, and when we sign him, we could recoup the money by selling Aleksandar Mitrovic.
It seems a no brainer – but Rafa would need to persuade him to come to the north-east – but he can do that.
Here are some typical tweets.
So if Lucas Perez signs, we’ll have two Perez’s at the club, neither of who will have Perez on the back of their shirt #nufc

Lucas Perez has been dealt a serious blow by Arsenal. #nufc is his best bet to find some first team form.

Wishful thinking but if we managed to pull off both Lucas perez and correa as well as vazquez then I’d be over the moon. #NUFC

Lucas Perez looks like an unselfish Arjen Robben #NUFC

If we sign Lucas Perez I don’t think Mitro could be a Newcastle Player comethe End of the window #NUFC

Lucas Perez would be a great signing, can’t see it happening though. Some big club like West Ham or Bournemouth will come in for him. #NUFC

Lucas Perez from Arsenal for 13Mil would be a steal. Never been given a chance at Arsenal and when he’s played he scores. #Nufc

Lucas Perez would take us up a level. Instantly go from fighting relegation to battling for mid-table if we got him. 15+ goals imo. #NUFC
