Magpies Keen On Les Bleus Star

Newcastle United are just three points above the relegation zone, and need something special to help them turn their season around.

They had hoped to lure French international striker, Loic Remy, to St James Park.

But the forward was seduced by the cash waved at him by QPR’s billionaire owner, and duly scored for the R’s with his first shot at goal in England last weekend.

Newcastle are still keen to add some more Gallic flair to their line-up however, to join the likes of Hatem Ben Arfa, Yohan Cabaye and Mathieu Debuchy.

And they have now targeted 22-year-old French international midfielder, Moussa Sissoko, from Toulouse.

Sissoko is out of contract at Toulouse at the end of the season. And rather than lose him for free in six months’ time, the Ligue 1 club may opt to sell him now.

They have given Sissoko permission to speak to the struggling Magpies, in talks scheduled for Wednesday.

QPR have also been linked to Sissoko, which will surely enrage Newcastle.

And so while it is unclear as to where the midfielder will eventually land up, it is certain that his time at Toulouse will soon be up.

"Moussa Sissoko has three choices: extend his contract with Toulouse, leave this winter or stay on the bench until June," the French club’s president Olivier Sadran told BeIN Sport.

"If he extends his contract, he'll have the chance to leave at the end of the season with a very big bonus.

“There are offers from Marseille and Monaco, and some English clubs are trying to get involved. If he doesn't decide quickly, I'll take a decision."
