Newcastle United will continue to keep tabs on 18 year-old Aristote Lusinga at Nantes.
Newcastle have been interested in the Nantes youngster for a while now, and although he signed a three-year contract with Nantes yesterday, we wouldn’t be at all surprised if he ended up on Tyneside before August is out.
The young center-back resisted interest from Newcastle to sign for the French club, but that is unlikely to put off Newcastle if they believe Lusinga is worth bringing to Tyneside.
We signed 5 top class youngsters in January, and Aristote seems to be the latest emerging star we are after.
The 18 year-old top prospect is expected to attract a reasonable bid from Newcastle, and he could be the first youngster to be captured by the club in the summer transfer window.
Aristote is 5â€²11â€³ tall, and turned 18 years-old only last February.
Newcastle have yet to make an offer for the player, but it wouldn’t take much to bring the player to Newcastle, and we think the lad would be another good investment for the club.
