NUFC To Sign Cabaye Ex-Teammate?

Reports this morning claim that Newcastle are after St.Eitienne striker, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The Gabon international can also play on the wing and has previously been linked with Aston Villa as a possible replacement for Darren Bent, who looks sure to leave after being frozen out by Paul Lambert.

The ‘small’ sticking point could be the speculated transfer fee of up to £10m to land a player who only  a year ago was signed for £1.5m from AC Milan.

The striker has scored 9 in 16 matches so far this season after 16 in 36 last-term, after initially joining St.Etienne on loan.

A former teammate of Yohan Cabaye when joining him on loan at Lille in 2009, Aubameyang has also had loan spells at Dijon and Monaco.

One positive would be that Gabon have not qualified for the upcoming African Cup Of Nations, though the downside may be that Jonas won’t fancy having to share the dressing room with another superhero (see photo).
