Newcastle United takeover & transfer news: Magpies lead race for Juve star plus attacker set for June sale
The 25-year-old Frenchman has struggled for gametime in Turin since his free transfer move from PSG, and is likely to be allowed to leave the Serie A giants when the transfer window reopens.
Reports also suggest Arsenal and Everton are also interested in the supremely talented, yet troubled player, once regarded as the future of French football.
Elsewhere, Barcelona are reportedly set to sell United target Philippe Coutinho, when his Bayern Munich loan spell comes to an end.
According to Mundo Deportivo, Barca want to move the player on following the end of the Bundesliga, which started up last week without the injured Brazilian.
And the report claims Kia Joorabchian has been contacted by a number of clubs in England, with Leicester City’s Brendan Rodgers a big admirer.
The La Liga outfit are hoping to recoup more than £70million for the player.
