Corresponding RMC SportsNewcastle and West Ham are interested in signing Strasbourg defender Gerzino Nyamsi who has shone this season.
What’s the matter?
Well, it’s no surprise that the Magpies and the Hammers are keeping a close eye on the 25-year-old.
RMC Sports claim Nyamsi – who Napoli applied for in January – has been one of the best defenders in France this season and the stats prove it.
The French news outlet describes how he leads in terms of tackles, aerial duels and dribbling in the opposition half.
By the sounds of it, Nyamsi is a progressive defender who would excel in a possession-based Premier League side, as well as a team that often defends for their lives.
Newcastle must beat West Ham against Gerzino Nyamsi
In our opinion, Newcastle should do everything they can to sign Nyamsi as he is clearly a better option than Sven Botman.
The 22-year-old also plays in Ligue 1, although as mentioned, Nyamsi tops the charts for defending and possession, surpassing Botman in that regard.
Amanda Staveley has already confirmed that the Dutchman is keen to join Newcastle but with AC Milan reportedly set to strike a deal, a move for Nyamsi should be her next course of action.
West Ham could pose a threat as they are expected to be able to offer targets a chance to play Europa League football next season.
However, Newcastle are now among the richest clubs in Europe, so they could blow the Irons out of the water from a financial point of view.
