Newcastle In Advanced Talks For Striker

8 years ago

There are claims this morning that Newcastle United are in advanced talks with French International striker, Loic Remy.

Newcastle (and other clubs!) have been repeatedly linked with the player but the Telegraph are claiming that talks are now at an advanced stage between United and Marseille, with part of the deal including a Newcastle player going the other way.

Remy has been largely out of favour this season but in the previous two seasons scored 37 goals in 83 club appearances.

Remy was in the provisional French squad for the Euros earlier this year but failed to make the final cut of 23.

As well playing as a main striker, Remy can also operate as the second striker or on the wing, so in theory at least he ticks a lot of boxes as the kind of versatile striker that we haven’t got.

The deal is touted to be worth £10m and the Newcastle player believed to be possibly going in the opposite direction is Gabriel Obertan.

Obviously if this deal did happen then I think most of us would be wondering who else would be leaving…
