Newcastle Linked With Cedric Bakambu Transfer

7 years ago

Another name has been thrown into the ring in January, with striker Cedric Bakambu said to have been watched by Newcastle United.

The 22 year old forward currently plays for Sochaux who are all but relegated as they sit second bottom with only two wins and eleven points in Ligue 1.

It is reported by L’Equipe that the French club are looking to cash in this transfer window to bring in much needed funds as they are accepting that relegation is all but inevitable.

On the surface, 17 goals in 71 matches over the last 3 league seasons doesn’t get the pulse racing, but the fact he is playing for a poor team and has 6 of their paltry 15 goals this season isn’t a bad return and maybe suggests an improving young player.

Having represented France at under 19 and under 20 level, Sochaux are said to be wiling to deal at around 3m Euros for the striker but even if Newcastle carry through their interest it would be asking a lot for Bakambu to make an instant step up from the foot of Ligue 1 to scoring goals in the Premier League.
