Newcastle Linked With Skilled But Inconsistent French Attacker – Report



Newcastle have been linked with a move for Ludovic Blas of Nantes. This comes from a Daily Star exclusive by Jacques Talbot, who also writes for The Mirror and The Guardian among others.

According to Talbot, Newcastle have engaged in transfer talks for the 24-year-old Frenchman, though that may be jumping the gun a bit. Watford are also supposedly trying to bring the player in this month.

Blas is a versatile attacking threat from multiple areas of the pitch. He generally plays as either an inverted winger on the right or a second striker. This season he has been in decent form with 8 goals in his 20 appearances.


The former French U20 international joined Nantes in September of 2019. He has since made 87 appearances with an impressive 26 goals and 7 assists. Interestingly, he is represented by CAA Base, who also represent both Kieran Trippier and Chris Wood.

He previously played for Guingamp rising through their Academy to become their youngest player to appear and score in Ligue 1. He first made a name for himself in the U19 Euros in 2016 helping France to the title with 2 goals and 2 assists.

His performances as a youth prospect had him on the radar of Liverpool, AC Milan, and Lyon. Liverpool and AC Milan’s interest continued as recently as last year with Juventus also having an interest.

Blas is undoubtedly a talented player who can dazzle audiences with his skills. However, he runs hot and cold and has failed to fulfill his early promise as a potential full French international.

It remains to be seen if Newcastle are actually after Blas in this window. He is probably on head of recruitment Steve Nickson’s expansive list of players. However, whether he is a top target for January seems questionable.

    This is a wonderful story about snowflakes and I thought I might add something about some incredibly gifted individuals who changed science facts. Copernicus, Kepler and Gallileo for your delectation.

    Evening all,

    I wonder if Eddie will play Fraser as a RWB and Trippier as a LWB to get the crooses into the box for Wood tomorrow? We need as much service into the box as possible and with Fraser in there (which he has done well previously with Scotland) we have balance from both sides?

    I’d like to see Murphy get on the right wing also. He can put some lovely balls into the box and has looked ok lately.

    Will be a cracking game tomorrow and I’m really hoping for a good win to kick start our season. Would be lovely to see us out the bottom 3. It’s psychologically good for the players and even better to get players in. Big big 6 pointer and a MUST win game. We simply must win this game and no excuses.

    Still Ramsay for me Mund, just because of the uncertainty over how good Van der Beek is in the Premier league. Suppose if he hasn’t really been given a chance though then do you risk it and hope he comes good.

    Not sure Deli Ali will change his attitude even after a move to a new club. I would stay well clear personally.
    He hasn`t figured in a game for a long time, and there is a reason for that.

    I may be wrong but didn’t Ali start going downhill when Pochettino left. I think the change would do him good. Just think, if he gets back to where he was we could have a great player on our hands.
