Claims Newcastle Have Outbid Arsenal On Jamaal Lascelles
It is reported that Newcastle United have outbid Arsenal in the chase for Jamaal Lascelles.
The 20 year old defender has been offered a new contract by Nottingham Forest but Arsenal have a longstanding interest in the player and are believed to have offered £3m, with the possibility of the player being loaned back for the rest of the season.
Lascelles has started 12 Championship matches this season and picked up 4 yellow cards in the process.
Having appeared for both England under 19s and 20s, Lascelles also scored the first senior goal of his career in the league cup against Millwall this season.
Forest are currently fifth and so will be desperate to hold on to one of their up and coming stars, at the very least until the end of the season, to give them the best chance of getting back into the Premier League this time around.
