Newcastle United are looking to buy Yann Karamoh this summer, according to reports on Tuesday morning.
The right winger/striker has had a breakthrough season in France, becoming first choice at Caen despite being only 18.
The Shields Gazette say Newcastle are interested in buying the player but give no source to the story/claims.
Yann Karamoh was born in the Ivory Coast but has been on the books of Caen since being 12 years old.
After starring as a 16 and 17 year old for the reserve team at the French club, last season saw him make his mark in Ligue 1, featuring in 35 of Caen’s 38 league games.
He started 25 of those 35 Ligue 1 matches for the relegation battlers, helping them to finish one point and one place above the relegation zone.
Karamoh scored five goals in his debut first team season and turns 19 next month (July).
He has also represented France at every level from Under 16 to Under 21.
