The Congolese defender Chancel Mbemba is one of the first-team players Newcastle United have made available at the end of the 2017/18 season and there seems to be no lack of interest for the former Anderlecht man.
Mbemba largely struggled to break into the first team under Rafa Benitez who blamed the Congolese defender for lack of tactical discipline and inability to learn the language and communicate with the coach and teammates the way Benites would have wanted it.
Rafa Benitez barely used Mbemba last season who was pushed down the pecking order by Florian Lejeune, Ciaran Clark and Jamal Lascelles.
Anderlecht were keen on a reunion with Chancel Mbemba but were eventually priced out of any potential deal for the defender. He will not lack interest, however, with several Serie A sides and Portuguese giants FC Porto said to be interested in grabbing him this summer.
Portuguese media outlet Ojogo is suggesting a Champions League club FC Porto have already reached an agreement on personal terms with the 23-year-old.
