The French left-back is said to now want the move to Newcastle as he has come to terms with the fact that his future will not be at PSG. He turned down a chance to join the Magpies last summer to stay in Paris and fight for his place.
There were reports earlier that N’Soki was available for €8m but those may not have been accurate. PSG could demand a fee as high €15m for N’Soki though may be willing to come down from that amount.
GFFN states the player has just one year remaining on his contract, however, N’Soki signed an extension last year so we believe his contract may run until 2021.
They also report that Newcastle could get N’Soki for an initial fee of €10m plus some add-ons. Southampton are also chasing the 20-year-old but want him on a loan with an option to buy which PSG are not willing to do.
Newcastle have been scouting N’Soki since he was sixteen years old and hopefully, they can get this one done this time.
