Newcastle After Ligue 1 Attacker They Have Been Scouting Since Last Year

Get French Football News has a report out that Newcastle are trying to bring in Bordeaux winger Francois Kamano on deadline day today. Newcastle have been scouting Kamano for some time.

The 23-year-old would command a fee of around €15m and is also being tracked by Monaco and Genoa. Liverpool were reportedly also interested in the attacker last month.

Kamano is a right-footed forward who primarily plays on the left. However, he can play as a centre-forward or on the right as well.

Kamano is a Guinean international who has 23 caps for his country. He joined Bordeaux in from Bastia in 2016 for a fee of just £2m.
