Cedric Bakambu: Offered to Newcastle; in talks with Rennes

There have been many conflicting reports on Sochaux striker Cedric Bakambu over the last few days, and here, we try and clear up the details.

What is known, is that Bakambu is interesting Standard Liege as the Belgium side are looking for a striker. Reports coming out of Belgium are suggesting that Liege are ready to put a bid in for the Belgium, although these reports are unconfirmed.

L’Equipe, however, are taking the stance that the Frenchman is more likely to stay in his home country and they say that negotiations have been opened with Rennes over the player. 

We also understand that the player’s agent has offered him to Newcastle United in England as the representative involved felt that the player could be the right fit for the club, but whether they will follow up on this is unknown. 

Bakambu is one of two players alongside Sebastien Corchia that Sochaux will allow to leave this winter if a good offer comes their way.
