The Ligue 1 side, though, are not strapped for cash after they convinced Arsenal to part with around £72m for Nicholas Pepe in the last transfer window.
Newcastle will likely keep an eye on the 20-year-old’s progress and reassess in the summer.
Newcastle must find a way to start scoring goals, but they cannot give up on Joelinton – he has had a tough start to his Premier League career, but it is not his fault he is not scoring.
It is not like he is missing chance after chance.
The problem he has is he is feeding off scraps at the moment, and even if Newcastle bought Osimhen in January, it would be a pointless signing if they couldn’t get the ball to him.
The Toon must, therefore, look at ways they can improve their creativity rather than any more strikers.
