Newcastle United are said to be monitoring Angers star Angelo Fulgini.
According to a report from the Daily Mail yesterday, the Magpies are now in the race for the Frenchman, along with Crystal Palace.
Fulgini’s stock has steadily been rising over the past couple of years.
He may not play for one of the top clubs in Ligue 1, but he’s carved out a reputation as being a talented creator.
Last term, he scored 10 goals and made four assists, helping Angers to a safe 13th-placed finish.
Fulgini is seen as Angers’ best player and biggest asset.
A lot of the clubs in France are struggling financially at the moment due to the pandemic.
Angers see selling Fulgini as a means of alleviating some of the pressure.
On social media, some fans have been reacting to the interest in Fulgini, who is supposedly valued at around £12 million.
Some acknowledge he is a good player.
Others wonder what being on his tail means for the club’s pursuit of Joe Willock.
Like the Arsenal man, Fulgini is a more attack-minded midfielder.
Here’s what some supporters have said:
Just get him

Playing style looks like a hybrid cross between a Hatem Ben Arfa dribbler with a Nobby Solano passing/deadball technique.
