Many Newcastle United fans have flocked to a tweet about their former ace Mo Diame after transfer news emerged that they have been linked to Ibrahim Sangare, who has been compared to him.
As per The Daily Express, Everton are also interested in signing the 22-year old in the summer transfer window after Ligue 1 was suspended, meaning that Sangare’s club Toulouse were relegated.
The Ivorian international was poised to consider his future at the end of the season but now looks almost certain to leave the club following the relegation.
However, despite being 14 points behind 18th place Nimes, who are safe, the French team will be taking legal action against the decision which they have described as unjust, inequitable and unfounded in law.
ChronicleLive described Sangare as the new-era Diame, which prompted some members of the Toon faithful to share their thoughts on their ex-central midfield player. One Magpie claimed that he had Paul Pogba in his back pocket, whilst another said that he turned into prime Yaya Toure for half a campaign.
