Newcastle scout Bordeaux duo as they ponder January swoop

Newcastle scout Bordeaux duo as they ponder January swoop Newcastle have reportedly had scouts keeping a close eye on Bordeaux duo Francois Kamano and Samuel Kalu. According to a report from Italy, who cite claims from the Chronicle, the pair are on the Premier League side’s radar with attention beginning to turn to the January transfer window. The report claims that the Magpies had scouts present during Sunday’s game against Nice. The game finished 1-0 to Nice, but both players started for Bordeaux. Kamano was heavily linked with a move away from the French side during the summer but decided to stay put having joined in 2016. Rafa Benitez will be keen to add goals to his squad during the new year, with the Magpies among the lowest scorers in the Premier League. The Newcastle boss will be hoping for an equally successful January window this time around, with the new year period a key part in their attempts to avoid relegation last season.

Newcastle upon Tyne (locally /njuːˈkæsəl/ ( listen)), commonly known as Newcastle , is a city in Tyne and Wear, North East England, 103 miles (166 km) south of Edinburgh and 277 miles (446 km)

Newcastle are preparing to allow two players to leave in January, according to reports.

Full-back Achraf Lazaar is set to leave on a permanent deal, after failing to establish himself in the first-team since arriving from Palermo in 2016.

The Moroccan joined the Magpies on a five-year deal, but was sent out on loan to Benevento in 2017. Serie A provided no relief for the left-back, as Lazaar made just nine appearances in his time back in Italy.

Lazaar will likely leave Newcastle having made just nine senior appearances, in what has been an entirely forgettable stay.

On a lighter note, Cal Roberts is to get a chance away from St James’ on loan. An impressive run of form for the U23s has meant Rafael Benitez is ready to allow the South Shields-native to leave temporarily.

West Ham on alert with Brahimi set to leave Porto

West Ham on alert with Brahimi set to leave Porto West Ham have been put on red alert, according to reports, with Yacine Brahimi likely to leave FC Porto in the January transfer window. The Hammers have long been linked with a move for the Algerian international, whose future at Porto has come under intense scrutiny lately. Reports in Portugal, as cited by the Shields Gazette, have indicated that contract talks between Brahimi and Porto have reached an impasse, with the player now likely to move on at the nearest opportunity. It was claimed during the summer transfer window that Porto were holding out for a fee worth £26 million for their star man. Fresh claims state, however, that the Liga NOS outfit may be willing to negotiate at a lower price. The 28-year-old has scored two goals from nine league appearances this season. West Ham could be on the lookout for fresh creative talent in the January transfer window, with Manuel Lanzini still working his way back from knee ligament damage and Andriy Yarmolenko recovering from an Achilles injury.

Origi would cost Newcastle double what Liverpool paid.
Newcastle summer target Divock Origi will cost ‘upward of £20million’ in January, if Rafa Benitez opts to shore up his interest. The Magpies coach reportedly enquired about the Belgium international forward in the summer, with the former Wolfsburg loanee having fallen down the pecking order at Anfield. A host of clubs, including a number of Premier League outfits, have reportedly registered interest in the 23-year old ahead of the January transfer window, with Origi having not yet made an appearance for Jurgen Klopp’s side this season. And according to the Express & Star, as cited by the Shields Gazette, Origi will cost upwards of £20million, double that which Liverpool paid Lille for his services in 2014. The report also claims Wolves are interested, however they could be put off by the price tag, while other sources have also linked Everton with a move.
