According to L’Equipe, via Get French Football News, Newcastle United have launched a £7.2m offer for Paris Saint-Germain left-back Stanley N’Soki.
The 20-year-old came through the youth system at PSG and has made 16 first-team appearances for the capital giants in all competitions.
Get French Football News have confirmed L’Equipe’s story regarding a bid, although it has been claimed that the Magpies will have to come up with an offer of £9m plus add-ons to convince the French champions to sanction a move.
N’Soki, who is a France Under-21 international, made 12 Ligue 1 appearances during a breakthrough 2018-19 campaign.
As expected, a number of Newcastle fans have been on social media reacting to the latest speculation.
And whilst a number are excited by the possibility of the youngster arriving, others feel that their club will find it difficult to complete a deal.
A selection of the Twitter reaction is available to view below:

For a player we know they value at €15m. No wonder it takes us weeks to sign a player. #couldntgetitovertheline
