RMC Sport report that Newcastle United’s new owners are not wasting time in making preliminary moves in the transfer market.
The Magpies have entered into contact with the entourage of 20-year-old French youth international central defender Wesley Fofana about a possible transfer.
The ex-St Étienne man, who had interest from Real Madrid last summer, has become a priority target for the Saudi owners of NUFC.
Newcastle’s new owners have also informed Leicester City that a concrete offer could be made in the coming weeks, as the player continues to recover from a long-term injury.
Fofana is ahead in his recovery process, but is expected to be able to play again at the beginning of the 2022.
