Newcastle have today opened talks with 25 year-old Marseilles striker Loic Remy, according to reports in France, and Newcastle will try to close the deal as quickly as possible, although Tottenham and QPR are also interested.
Loic Remy – Newcastle said to be in negotiations
Newcastle would have tried to bring in a new striker whether or not Demba Ba moved on and if the Senegal man leaves we’ll have only tow experienced strikers, although it looks like Sola Ameobi will not be going to the African Cup of Nations.
The reports from France suggest Newcastle contacted Marseilles officials earlier this week, after Demba Ba’s advisers met with Chelsea officials in London on Sunday night and negotiations have started in earnest over the last couple of days.
The price is estimated at £10M and it would be another great singing to go with French International right back Mathieu Debuchy, with reports from his pal Yohan Cabaye saying he has already officially signed for Newcastle.
Debuchy and Remy would both be excellent signings for Newcastle.
