Premier League newcomers Newcastle United are hot on the trail of Metz winger Ismaila Sarr, according to France Football.
The 19-year-old enjoyed a great debut season in French Ligue 1, bagging 5 goals in 31 outings, and he is now being linked with a big club move.
While Lille also appear to be keen, it seems that Newcastle United lead the chase for Sarr’s signature.
Namely, the Magpies have money to spend after gaining promotion to the Premier League and they have offered €12 million for the talented footballer.
Even though Metz are holding out for €15 million, chances are that the two sides will eventually reach an agreement.
Newcastle United secured a straight return to the elite division, but they are now priced at 7/2 to get relegated again.
