Anthony Limbombe – reportedly available this summer
We were almost certain that Anthony Limbombe had joined Newcastle on loan on January 31st. However, the deal never materialized and we have not been linked with the player since.
Newcastle had been heavily linked with the Belgian international throughout the summer as well before he joined FC Nantes.
Limbombe was Nantes record signing when he joined from Club Brugge for £7.2M on August 23, 2018. However, he has failed to impress in Ligue 1 with just two assists in 29 league appearances to go with one goal.
The goal against Toulouse was indeed impressive though.
According to recent reports, Anthony Limbombe will be leaving Nantes this summer with interest being shown from clubs in La Liga.
It is uncertain if Newcastle would still be interested in the player after a subpar season in France.
Since there was heavy interest in the past, Newcastle may still be tracking him. Though we would not expect Anthony Limbombe to emerge as a top target this summer.
