Newcastle consider surprise bid for exciting Championship talent after contract talks stall – Report

According to new reports, Newcastle United are keeping a close eye on Bristol City star Antoine Semenyo.

This comes via an exclusive from Football League World, who claim that Eddie Howe could be willing to offer the explosive 22-year-old a shot at the Premier League this summer as he looks to add depth in attack.

Semenyo has been one of the standout players in the second tier this season, bagging eight goals and 12 assists in a struggling Robins side that currently sit 17th in the Championship.

The report states that Newcastle, Wolves and Crystal Palace have all been watching the versatile forward in recent weeks, with newly promoted Fulham and Bournemouth also admirers.

A powerful runner who can operate out wide or up top, Semenyo’s involvement in 20 goals in just 23 starts suggests he might just be ready to make the step up to the Premier League.

He could also be available at a cut-price fee, as Football League World claim that talks over a new contract have stalled – meaning he’ll be entering the final 12 months of his current deal this summer.
