Lille enquire for Emmanuel Rivière

Lille have made an enquiry concerning the availability of Newcastle United’s striker Emmanuel Rivière.

Rivière underwent a knee operation during the summer and has yet to play a single minute under Steve McClaren.

While the former Monaco man is understood to be open to a departure in January, the wage situation is likely to be far too difficult for Lille to overcome, according to Le 10 Sport.

Frédéric Antonetti has been very clear with the Lille board that he wants them to bring in a recognised, preferably French attacker next month.
