Newcastle United are interested in signing Arnaud Lusamba this summer.
The 23-year-old midfielder is a target for Leicester City as well but the Magpies are prepared to snap him up before their rivals.
As per reports, Newcastle have already opened talks with the player’s representatives regarding a summer move.
The likes of Strasbourg, Olympique Lyon and Bordeaux are keen on the player as well.
It will be interesting to see if they can convince the player to join the club this summer.
They will not have to agree on a fee with Nice because the player will be a free agent at the end of this month.
Newcastle are set to have a considerable transfer kitty this summer and they have been linked with a host of names already.
It remains to be seen which areas they decide to strengthen this summer.
Newcastle cannot hope to complete a major overhaul in one window and they should look to add a few quality players to their key areas.
With time, they will be able to rectify the other weaknesses in their squad.
Lusamba is a talented player and he would be a superb addition to Steve Bruce’s side. On a free transfer, it would be a no-brainer for Newcastle.
The 23-year-old can play as a forward or an attacking midfielder. He is a natural number ten who will add creativity to Bruce’s midfield.
Lusamba can fill in at central midfield as well if needed.
