Newcastle Interested In 24 Year-Old Monaco Striker


Football Direct News is reporting that Newcastle are looking at AS Monaco striker Emmanuel Riviere, and could make a move for the French striker in the summer.

Emmanuel Riviere

Emmanuel Riviere – 24 year-old French striker

Riviere joined AS Monaco only fifteen months ago from Toulouse on a four-and-a-half-year contract, and for a fee reported to be around €4M, and since then he has had a decent record at the club – scoring 16 goals in his 44 appearances with 4 assists.

Riviere has played for all the French Youth sides and 15 times for the French U21 side with 6 goals, so he seems to be a decent player.

The news is that Monaco will be bringing in new players in the summer, as they plan for life back in the Champions League, and they will be willing to let their 24 year-old striker move on, and Newcastle are interested.

It seems that Riviere will cost around £10M, and of course Newcastle will need to bring in a number of strikers this summer with Loic Remy, Shola Ameobi and Luuk de Jong all leaving the club for different reasons.

The player was previously at St. Etienne (85 appearances, 19 goals and 14 assists) and Toulouse (47 appearances, 10 goals and 2 assists).

    Pretty lucky that the goal post hit the crouch there…close.

    So disappointing watching us get dominated by Stoke and playing route one against them. The irony.

    I’m using the “feed2all” one and it’s okay. Although it does make the team playing in yellow appear to be not as good as the team in red and white.

    One thing I like about Gosling is his runs into the box. Always willing to get in there and atleast provide a threat. We have so little numbers in the box when we attack.

    Gosling is a more mobile Nolan, that unfortunately can’t finish.

    Look what happens when a wide-man aims for a player in the box, instead of just hopefully floating into a general area like we usually do – a chance is made!

    You would think with a 3-5-2 we would dominate the midfield, but the reverse effect is happening.

    Looks more like a 5-3-2… parked deep in our own half.

    Graeme…Apparently that site has nothing to do with SD, it’s just that SD paid for the naming rights or something for a while, but that has now ended. It was never going to last I suppose, I mean, Ashley paying for advertising? Must have been furious when he found out!

    Come off it Shola! When have you ever scored or got near from that distance? Could see the adrenaline running through him, did those diddy steps like a kid does before hitting a ball in excitement 😆

    The idea from Pardew is good but even a simpleton can see that Cisse and Shola TOGETHER is an awful way to go about it .

    Krul is always so sloppy and slow in the head. £10m – bite their hand off.

    hehe I’m gonna miss Shola. the good and the bad. Unfortunately there are more bad memories than good but it will be strange not having him at Newcastle, he has been with us forever. I wouldn’t him staying (as long as he only plays 1 in 10 games) (as he is only good 1 in 10 games :p )

    Good pass Anita…Timmy, how could you miss that chance?!?

    At least we’re showing a threat in front of goal. Shame it’s the wrong goal, but hey, one step at a time.

    How has Dummet risen to be considered worthy of first-team games? If he’s the most promising and worthy of our youngsters, I’d hate to see the worst.

    Might have been a pen there…

    I love how we are finally stringing together some passing, only to turn into morons as soon as we get near the box.

    Norcal…Cisse did pretty well to get in to the position I think. It was a close call, could be argued they both sort of reached the ball.

    Still, it’s not like we’re going to need any favours to get a result, is it?

    Alan Pardew is the puppet Sheriff of Hoofville.

    Saying Ben Arfa needs more goals and assists yet he is in love with Shola who never scores yet Marveaux had the top assists last year and is nowhere to be seen. The man is a serial liar and delusionist.

    I almost feel sorry for Gosling, he is the only one attempting to be creative, making runs off the ball, attempting to get involved in the play etc.

    The rest are stagnant.
