There is some potentially good news in the French Daily L’Equipe today, that Newcastle United are after top young French forward Florian Thauvin from Ligue One side Bastia.
Florian Thauvin – top young French attacking midfielder
The 20 year old has played for the French U18, U19 and U20 sides, and has been watched by Newcastle Chief Scout Graham Carr this season, and with a Newcastle delegation said to be in France this weekend, maybe the Board is trying to secure the services of one of the best young players in France at the moment.
Thauvin joined Bastia from Grenoble back in 2011 and so far he has played 23 times for his current club with a couple of goals.
He plays as an attacking midfielder and the 5’10” youngster could be a star of the future.
We certainly hope this news is true, because Newcastle need to show their ambition in January, and if we bring in some good players it will only help us to retain our best players this summer – always assuming we do not get relegated of course.
Thauvin, who was born in Orleans, is far from the finished article, but these are the kinds of signings Newcastle must make, if we are to end up with players valued at say £25M in the future.
And have a top side too. 😀
Howay The Lads!!
