There were reports in France over the weekend that Newcastle could be interested in 17 year-old Kingsley Coman, who is a central midfielder at PSG, and the news is that Newcastle have been watching the promising young player, who has played for all the French Youth sides through U19.
Kingsley Coman – top young Frenchman at PSG
Coman was born in Paris, and he made his debut for his home town club in February of last year against Sochaux in a 3-2 defeat, and that made him the youngest player ever to play for Paris Saint-Germain, at the age of 16 years, 8 months and 4 days – approximately.
Coman has played 4 times for the PSG first team, and Newcastle are reported to be interested in signing the top youngster, although Juventus are also after the player, and they would be favorites if that interest in true.
PSG also have a contract offer in front of the player, but it looks he is ready to leave his home town club.
And Newcastle will have its attractions for the lad, and we still have a top name in France, and he would be fast-tracked at Newcastle, and more so than at Juventus or PSG.
And this is also is the young age we need to sign players at, if we are to spot them young, and hopefully turn them into future top players at Newcastle.
That has been the plan for last seven years, but Newcastle have not been too successful at doing that – not yet anyway.
This lad would be a good signing for Newcastle, if we can get him, and he turns 18 on June 13th – unlucky for some.
