Well it looks like we’ve had our excitement for today after news that Newcastle were after Lyon striker Aleksandar Lacazette as reported by French daily L’Equipe.
News after the reports started to come through that we had offered a record €25M for the French International striker is that Newcastle are mystified by the reports.
Lyon striker Aleksandar Lacazette – no bid?
In addition this morning there was a report from the Press Association (PA) that while Newcastle are obviously interested in Lacazette – no bid has in fact been launched.
We suppose Newcastle could still bid for the Frenchman but our best bet right now seems to be to get Loic Remy on loan for the season.
It seems our biggest competition for Loic is from Crystal Palace and it would be another blow if former manager Alan Pardew persuades Loic to join Palace in loan for the rest of the season.
Loic would be just great for us – if we can get him.
