Newcastle United in negotiations to sign Monaco winger Mehdi Zerkane

The transfer window is yet to officially start and still clubs have begun negotiations to sign players. This is notably the case for Premier League side Newcastle United, who lost 3-2 to Liverpool last night.

They are in negotiations with the entourage of 19-year-old AS Monaco right-winger Mehdi Zerkane, who has played 10 matches this season in the UEFA Youth League and scored twice and provided one assist.

The Clermont-Ferrand native’s current deal with ASM expires at the end of the season and can join any club of his choosing on a free transfer. Another side, in Ligue 1, is also in talks with the player but that team’s identity is yet to filter through.
