Newcastle Monitoring The Situation Of Another Star On Expiring Contract – Report



One of Newcastle’s plans in the winter window appears to be targeting players on expiring contracts. Over the weekend, a report claimed Borussia Monchengladbach’s Marcus Thuram had hit the shortlist.

The French international will have just six months left on his contract in January. He seems headed for the open market with Gladbach unable to tie down their star striker on a new deal.

Newcastle World has cited reports from France that Lyon attacking midfielder Houssem Aouar is still an option for Newcastle. The 24-year-old was initially linked soon after the summer window closed and like Thuram, seems destined to become a free agent at season’s end.

After a tumultuous summer in which Aouar was desperate to depart Lyon, he found himself frozen out by manager Peter Bosz. However, the former Leverkusen boss was sacked in October after a tepid start.

In came Laurent Blanc, who immediately placed his compatriot into his starting eleven. Aouar started the final six matches before the World Cup break scoring 1 goal. He has still yet to commit his future to the club he has spent his entire career with.

Newcastle are reportedly keeping their eyes on the talented midfielder. However, AC Milan are leading the chase and Lyon may decide to sell Aouar to the highest bidder in January rather than lose their Academy product for nothing.

His price tag in recent years was as high as ยฃ40m but he’ll be available for a fraction of that this winter. The talented Frenchman could be one to watch when the winter opens as he’ll fill a creative need on Tyneside.

    After the weekend talk of gammon and wokes
    How could I write a poem without upsetting some folks?
    I tend to avoid the world of politics
    And focus on those who are swinging their dicks

    It’s easy to make fun of the WhatsApp boys
    As they’re usually the ones making all the noise
    So I wrote a few verses but when reading it back
    It seemed I was launching a personal attack

    That’s not the way I intend it to be
    As I’ve nothing against anyone personally
    So I tried to soften it up and change the tone
    By taking myself out of my comfort zone

    But it still sounded bitchy, like it was written by Jane
    And a complete rewrite was too much of a pain
    So for the health and safety of the blog
    I’ve flushed that bad boy down the bog

    I’m not to everyone’s taste and I have my detractors
    And I’m sure being acerbic is one of the factors
    Tho’ it’s only the WhatsApp crew who show their discord
    Plus those trying to score points so they’re invited aboard

    I hope by discarding that poem I’ve now made a start
    In making some realise that I do have a heart
    And there’s no malice involved in these rhymes by me
    I’m just a lyrical gangster intent on taking the P

    Those nice leftoids will look after you – after the Russian Revolution Lennin and his cronies murdered between 100,000 and 200,000 people.

    That other left hero Che Guevara murdered thousands as well.

    What about China’s human rights records – conveniently overlooked.

    Ya couple of arch hypocrites.

    Clinath- I haven’t seen any of the world Cup yet but if people who have paid millions sending teams of presenters and pundits to Qatar and for rights to show games its clearly hypocritical of the tosspots.
    I’ve read the excuses of Lineker and Co saying they are only there to report … why do they need to be in a studio in Qatar… could quite easily report from London watching on TV

    As predicted , England will breeze through the group stages – Iran and USA may be ranked in fifa top 20 but the fifa ranking system is terrible and doesn’t take into account level of opposition , its like a boxer racking up a 30-0-0 record against has beens and nobodies then fighting a genuine contender… 99 times out of hundred they are getting knocked out early

    What a time to declare your nice guy credentials! This weekend’s contributions could’ve presented enough material for book of verse.

    But, being the person you are, your silence speaks volumes.

    Bonjour Mesdames et Messieurs!

    Wouldn’t go for Aouar at the moment, he play really bad since the start of the season.

    Especially, he never was a fast player, but he look so slow now, it’s worrying.
