Newcastle United: Magpies ‘interested’ in Ludovic Blas

Newcastle United: Magpies ‘interested’ in Ludovic Blas -Newcastle United News

Newcastle United are reportedly now ‘interested’ in signing Nantes midfielder Ludovic Blas in the summer.

The Lowdown: Salah comparisons

Mo Salah is having yet another remarkable season for Liverpool, as having already bagged the Carabao Cup, he is currently the outright top scorer in the Premier League with 20 goals so far, while he has also made ten assists (BBC).

Thus, to be compared to him is some praise indeed, and that is exactly what former Reds man Pedro Chirivella has done when discussing Blas, putting his teammate in the same breath as ex-teammates Salah, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Philippe Coutinho (So Foot).

Should Newcastle sign Blas?

Yes

Yes

No

No

He also described Blas as a ‘pure talent’ and an ‘incredible’ and ‘spectacular’ player (So Foot), and so the 24-year-old looks to have a very bright future ahead of him.

The Latest: Newcastle interest

As per Italian football journalist Rudy Galetti, the St. James’ Park faithful, as well as West Ham United, are now ‘interested’ in Blas, who ‘could leave’ Nantes this summer.

Only the biggest Newcastle fan will get 100% on this transfer quiz, test your friends and family! First up, who was Craig Bellamy sold to?

The Ligue 1 club value the attacking midfield player at around €20m (£16.7m).

The Verdict: Sign

Given his rave reviews, and the fact that he is only 24, Blas could turn out to be a real bargain at just under £17m.

He has scored no fewer than 12 goals and made a further two assists in 32 matches over all competitions, mainly operating from an attacking midfield role (Transfermarkt), which would be useful in easing the goalscoring burden off of the likes of Callum Wilson and Allan Saint-Maximin.

Interestingly, he also shares the same agent as both Kieran Trippier and Chris Wood, two players who were signed by the North East club in the January transfer window, and so this is a deal that should definitely be doable.
