Toon eyeing Ligue 1 raid as new report names FOUR midfielders discussed in transfer talks

The Athletic are reporting that Boubacar Kamara remains on Newcastle United’s wanted list, however it seems he isn’t the only Ligue 1 midfielder under consideration.

The Marseille tanet was heavily linked with a move to Tyneside last summer and his current deal is set to expire at the end of the season – meaning we could swoop in for a cut-price deal.

Interestingly, the same piece states that PSG’s Idrissa Gueye has been discussed in transfer summits, while Lens skipper Seka Fofana and ex-Toon star Gini Wijnaldum are also believed to be on our radar.

Most fans feel the engine room is an area that we need to improve on in the second half of the season, with Jonjo Shelvey the only man who can take any credit for his performances in the middle of the park.

Those sentiments have been accelerated further by the news that Isaac Hayden is set to be ruled out for several months with a knee injury.

Newcastle have exploited the French league to great effect over the years and it looks like we could possibly do the same again this month; especially when so many sides are short on cash after being hit hard by Covid.
