NEWCASTLE are reportedly set to make a move for Lyon and Belgium centre-back Jason Denayer after failing to secure deals for Sven Botman and Diego Carlos in January.
The Magpies remain keen to bolster their squad further after splashing the cash on defensive reinforcements キーラントリッピアー and Dan Burn last month.
Denayer has featured 17 times for Lyon this season, 3つのゴールを決める, but looks set to be a free agent this summer as his contract expires in July.
According to RMC Sport, talks have stalled with the French club and the 26-year-old wants a new challenge.
Signing a player so experienced, who has appeared 33 times for the Belgium national side, on a free transfer could be shrewd business.
Eddie Howe wanted to sign Lille’s Dutch Under-21 centre-back Sven Botman in a deal worth a possible £50million, however AC Milan remain in pole position to bring him in.
There was also rumours about Sevilla’s Diego Carlos arriving at St James’ Park in a big money deal but that never materialised either.
