The January transfer window has barely slammed shut and talks about summer reinforcements are already in the air. Perhaps it is a chance for clubs to right the wrongs of January and move forward with a hope of tying up everything in the summer. Here we look at the possible summer signings for Newcastle United.
- CLEMENT GRENIER (Lyon)
The young Lyon midfield wizard has come into public limelight in the past couple of season with impressive performances on the pitch, and would be a perfect signing for Alan Pardew and Newcastle who just can’t stop looking at France. Grenier is young, and could be a long-term replacement for Yohan Cabaye. Fans fumed at Newcastle’s failure to replace Cabaye on deadline day, but Grenier could just be the man to take them to the next level if and when he arrives in the summer. And he would have no problems settling in; Newcastle is the mini-France of England.
- BAFETIMBI GOMIS (Lyon)
One more Frenchman on their bucket-list is Lyon’s powerful brute Bafetimbi Gomis. Gomis has endured frustration at Lyon of late; he needs newer surroundings to claim a place back in the French national team. A move to Newcastle is a huge possibility given Newcastle’s strong French recruitment contingent. Gomis would add a new dimension to the Magpies’ attack and with Lioc Remy’s future still uncertain; Gomis would fit the bill perfectly. Papiss Cisse’s contract issues continue to rumble on, it is time Pardew and co open their checks books and throw the money.
- REMY CABELLA (Montpellier)
It is hard to go past France, and in Remy Cabella it is another Frenchman we are talking about. Cabella’s stunning form for Montpellier has seen his stock rise dramatically and now he is on the radar of a host of illustrious European clubs. Newcastle have already made a head start in this regard; they had a bid rejected in January and it would be foolish to not expect them to come back again in the summer. A deal looks possible; Montpellier aren’t the Lyon-like tough negotiators.
