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?

    Superstar

    At 21 years and 177 days, Erling Haaland is the youngest-ever player to score 55 Bundesliga goals, as well as the quickest to ever reach that mark, with 55 goals in 59 #Bundesliga appearances.
    #BVB #BVBSGF #BorussiaDortmund

    Erling Haaland: “Borussia Dortmund are now pushing me to make a decision about things… but I just want to play football. That probably means that I will soon have to get things started”, he told
    @JanAageFjortoft
    . #BVB

    “I never spoke until now to respect the club”, he said.

    Come to the toon lad!

    Bambams,

    We owe Amanda so much. She pulled it out the bag, she kept in there and battled away and got us in the end. It’s a marriage made in heaven, we really couldn’t have gotten a better set up and ownership. Amanda really genuinely gets the fan base, the club and tbe City.

    We have well and truly landed on our feet. It’s amazing to to think where we were to where we are now. We’ve got our club back and we are in safe hands from top to bottom. Take care and stay safe. Laters mate 🙂

    Darnik,

    Without a doubt, the lady did well.

    I don’t wanna sound derogatory here, but in a game dominated by men, she’s a breath of fresh air………..if we go to unbridled success, I can see a peerage coming her way

    Darnik,

    Exactly mate, we were so close to doing a Sunderland if they didn’t come in. Then again I did deep down always feel they’d get us in the end. The Saudi’s get there way most times, money talks.. The likes of Mund always stayed strong and kept the faith stating we’d get our day and they’d own us eventually and of course he was always right to do so.

    In really enjoying the start of this journey we will be going on mate.

    I’d take Ludovic Blas in a heartbeat. HBA 2.0
    He’d thrive in an attacking system.

    Repost: think I missed the bus

    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.

    Things could have gone so wrong for us had she not been so single minded, tbf if she hadn’t got the Saudis on board a Sunderland was definitely on the cards, she definitely deserves the keys to the city and will go down in history because let’ss face it these owners aren’t here to fail so if the worst should happen they will see it as a minor set back, Dubai Mickey will confirm that they won’t Want to fail as they will lose face

    Hear hear to post #62. NY is right in saying with Amanda being a woman in a male dominated position will be recognised.

    The Saudi’s working with Amanda a woman and the Rubens (Jewish) fair play to them for changing their whole approach. Amazing what is taken shape at our club. Sent huge shock waves through the sport it has.

    Exactly mate, anyone still banging on about the regime and their beliefs need to take note of what is happening here and now, they are clearly trying to change and therefore should be allowed the opportunity to do so, fortunately for us we’re at the forefront of the change and will benefit from it, makes a pleasant change doesn’t it

    Darnik,

    Yes mate, rather than all the negativity it created with all the jealousy and hypocrisy. The Saudi’s should have been recognised for their changes and as part of their 2030 vision. All the noise will start getting less, all the pundit trolls will be knocked down and they can stay there as we move forward. There is nothing that’s gonna stop this jaugonot.
