The 24-year-old joined the Magpies from Nottingham Forest in 2014, and is a key player for Rafael Benitez’s side.
He has been the rock at the back, and his leadership skills have appreciated by the Magpies fans.
Lascelles is a highly rated defender and he signed a contract extension in 2017 that will keep him at the club till 2023.
Rafael Benitez said in February that he is not worried with the rumours about Lascelles. The Spaniard rather wants the player to improve at Newcastle and help the club grow as well.
The report from Mirror claims that Chelsea are looking to sign a homegrown defender, and they see Lascelles as the perfect fit.
The Blues will bid £30million for the centre-back and they see him as heir apparent to John Terry. Newcastle fans believe that all interested parties should offer at least thrice the amount for Lascelles if they want to sign the defender.
That’s enough to buy his boots 🤣 why sell a player that can take us forward it’s just more paperwork talk stirring up interest

Need to at least double it. If Stones is worth 50 million Lascelles is worth 60-70

Can’t see him leaving. He is the captain of a Premier League side who have pretty much guaranteed safety for another season in the top flight. If he were to go to Chelsea he may make the occasional starting appearance now and then and sub appearance. Brighter future with us imo.

If VVD is £70m then come back with sumit over that figure.
