Aubameyang and Isimat-Mirin are on Newcastle radar

Aubameyang and Isimat-Mirin are on Newcastle radar

Metro states Newcastle are set to expand their French legion in summer by landing highly-rated Saint-Etienne striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Valenciennes defender Nicolas Isimat-Mirin.

The Magpies’ new-boys Moussa Sissoko, Debuchy Haidara Yanga-Mbiwa and Gouffran have settled quickly and started making a necessary impact almost immediately with Sissoko setting up a goal for Papiss Cisse in his debut game and scoring brace in a crucial home game against Chelsea. Such a successful experience has apparently inspired Newcastle hierarchy to try and search for more talents in Ligue 1.
Newcastle managing director Derek Llambias confirmed the club is determined to scout the French market for potential signings again. “There are still targets in France. We haven’t finished with the French market. We want to expand in Europe. We’ll be moving around Europe: we already do.”

It is believed forward Aubameyang will be on the top of Newcastle’s shopping list in summer, despite Saint-Etienne rejecting the bid of £8 million in the transfer deadline day.
