Newcastle United will be desperate to avoid relegation in the current campaign, so they’ll be looking to strengthen in the January transfer window.
The Magpies have been a mixed bag so far this season as they’ve struggled to ensure consistency throughout, which has halted their progress under Rafa Benitez.
Although, it appears as if the Tyneside club are eyeing a potential addition, as according to Calciomercato (via Read West Ham), Newcastle United are interested in signing Sol Bamba.
Newcastle, West Ham and Fulham are all being linked with a move to sign Cardiff City defender Sol Bamba.
The former Ivory Coast international has been one of the standout performers for Cardiff City in the current campaign, which has attracted the attention of Rafa Benitez.
It’s believed that a fee between £2-3 million could be required if any club wants to sign him, but Neil Warnock will be reluctant to lose one of his key players on the cheap.
Newcastle United have struggled to keep things tight at the heart of the defence this season, so they’ll be desperate to secure the services of Sol Bamba in January.
The Cardiff City man would slot right into the back line at St James’ Park having impressed at Cardiff City this season. And, with Jamaal Lascelles possibly attracting interest in January, perhaps the 49-cap international will be drafted in as a direct replacement for him.
