Newcastle Linked With Midfielder Who’s Compared With Greats – Coutinho, Firmino, Salah, And Mane



The Star have an exclusive out today that both Newcastle United and tomorrow’s opponents Watford are in transfer talks to acquire Nantes Ligue 1 forward Ludovic Blas.

The 24-year-old joined Nantes from EA Guingamp in the summer of 2019 and since then the forward has played 87 games for Nantes with 26 goals and 7 assists.

He has also played for the France U20 side and he was part of France’s U19 European Championship squad back in 2016 when they won the European U19 Championship.

The report suggests that he has been labeled as talented as  Mohamed Salah, and other Liverpool greats, but if that’s true, why isn’t he in the current full French squad?

To be fair, he has been a star at Nantes over the last two seasons, with the player usually playing on the right wing, although he can also play in central midfield.

His five-year contract with Nantes runs out in June 2024, and he is now attracting interest, at least from Newcastle and our opponents tomorrow afternoon, Watford.

Former Liverpool midfielder Pedro Chirivella has said this about Blas in the French magazine So Foot

“When it comes to pure talent, I rate Ludovic Blas above all others.”

“I played with Coutinho, Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, I know what they are capable of.”

“And when I see what “Ludo” is doing in training or in games, he has nothing to envy them when it comes to talent.”

Our heads are starting to spin with all the transfer links to players we have seen this month, but it does show the Newcastle recruitment team and owners have done their homework.

And Newcastle seem determined to bring in two centers-backs, another striker, and also a central midfielder before the month is out.

Maybe Ludovic Blas will be the central midfielder?

What do you think?

    If we’re getting Cantwell that’s what you want him doing what Gallagher has just done to Brighton.
    FtC and Darnik you aren’t related to Shelvey by any chance.

    This fella has the same agent as Trippier and Wood so we might be in with a shout of bringing him in.

    Darnik, I agree. Ritchie is atrocious as an out and out full back. Wouldn’t really have him in the team (but needs must) and I think his days are numbered.

    Brighton unlucky in this game. Butland kept Palace in it with some canny saves and now it looks like they’re stealing all three points.

    The other option is to play Murphy as the left wing back. I like Murphy, and he is improving. I do see him as a squad player over next two years as we grow in quality

    Chaps

    Nice words and I appreciate them 🙂

    New role at work, rarely get as much time as used to, but I do get the odd chance to try and get on here.

    It’s been a bit of a whirlwind the last few months !

    Constantly messaging my nephew back home to see if he has heard anything and I cannot wait to see who we end up with at the end of the window !

    I genuinely believe we will be fine by the end of the season.

    You lot stay safe eh, and no bickering on here.

    Take care chaps, hopefully back on here more regularly soon.

    Regan,

    Can`t imagine his kid to be that expensive either, so could be worth a shout, not that money is a problem.
    Like you say his agent will know of any get out clause or whatever,

    Crystal palace can be got at, we can finish above them if we get a good second half to the season. I’m hoping we get as high in the league as possible. I think we’ll do a lot better than 17th this season. Me Mams a mystic Meg type and she says so 😉
