This Could Help Newcastle’s Transfer Dealings This Summer

Newcastle need to move some players out this summer, and they include Frenchmen Ben Arfa, Sylvain Marveaux, Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa and Gabby Obertan, and also Argentine winger Jonas Gutierrez, whose time also seems to be up at the Tyneside club.

Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa – could be used in part exchange deal

And since Newcastle usually sign players from the French market, maybe using these players in part-exchange deals would be a reasonable strategy for the Tyneside club to follow this summer.

Newcastle have various targets in France this summer, and our three main ones appear to be Lyon’s Alexandre Lacazette and Clement Grenier, and Montpellier winger Remy Cabella.

So it would appear that players like defender Mapou Yanga-Mbia and winger Ben Arfa, two of the better players on sale this summer, could even help Newcastle get some of their targets in over the summer.

It would seem like a reasonable strategy, and there are reports that Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa could even be used in a part exchange deal to get one of our two targets at Lyon.

And if Newcastle do allow Mathieu Debuchy to leave this summer to a big club – either to Arsenal, PSG or Monaco – then we could take one of their better players in part exchange and get some cash in addition to that.

22 year-old Arsenal right back Carl Jenkinson has been mentioned as a possible pawn in the deal – if Debuchy actually does move to Arsenal.
