Are French Club After Newcastle Target’s Replacement?

SC Amiens are reportedly targeting Caen’s defender Jonathan Gradit who split time between centre-back and right back the past two seasons. However prior to that, he was exclusively used as a right-back.

This could signify that the French club are looking for a replacement for right-back Emil Krafth who Newcastle have recently had a £4.5m bid rejected for. Though they are most likely just being prepared in case Newcastle come back in with an improved offer.

According to Get French Football News that offer may have to be double the amount of Newcastle’s rejected bid.

There is no way Newcastle will bid that much for a player who cost just £2m at the beginning of this month. Unless Amiens significantly drop their asking price, we don’t see any way that Krafth will be heading to Newcastle. Though the player reportedly is keen to join.
