Last summer Bafetimbi Gomis looked like a prime Mike Ashley signing but have the last 9 months ensured he is now out of reach?
After Yohan Cabaye’s departure it was claimed a Clement Grenier transfer was on the cards, no movement in January but the player admits he was ‘flattered’.
It is reported in France today that Newcastle have bid around £11m for Lyon’s wide midfielder/number 10, Clement Grenier.
Newcastle have now been linked with a player who has a very similar profile to Remy Cabella; £10m rated Clement Grenier of Lyon.
The Bafetimbi Gomis transfer speculation is hotting up (again!) and the Lyon President has claimed a number of offers have been made.
The latest transfer speculation sees Gueida Fofana in the frame for Newcastle United, a plausible target for United if you discount the source…
Gomis actually got a recall into the Lyon first team against Montpelier in their last league match, not a great day though as they were stuffed 5-1 and the striker was substituted late on.
“Remember it was a financial problem, it has been a difficult time for Bafe, the club, everyone.”
As seems the norm now at Newcastle, events beyond Pardew and his team’s control, or indeed anybody else left at St.James’ Park, could be the biggest factor in dictating what happens in the remains of this transfer window.
While progress in the transfer market hasn’t exactly been quick this summer, at least it appears that Newcastle are definitely getting there with regard to at least one essential striker signed up.
