Newcastle fans would like to see more signings made before long after what has been a summer of speculation and a couple of failed bids, for Luuk de Jong and Mathieu Debuchy.
One player who has been on the radar for a while is Montpellier captain Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa, a defender who is also being tracked by AC Milan.
The 23-year-old Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa: “I know that Newcastle are interested in me.
“Newcastle would be a great opportunity for me, and I would hope that eventually I could join Milan.
“Joining Newcastle before Milan would give me the chance to mature even more and gain more experience. We’ll see what happens.
“It is possible that I can renew my contract with Montpellier, it is possible I will not renew it. I do not exclude the possibility of renewing my contract with Montpellier.
“Playing for Milan would certainly be a great opportunity.”
