Newcastle should look at French market again and move for £4.95m-rated talented attacker

The Newcastle fans within the Transfer Tavern are delighted to have stretched their stay in the Premier League and with Rafa Benitez willing to stay should he get a big transfer budget, things are looking up at St James’ Park.

In what started as a good season although finished as one, the Magpies did enough to beat the drop and now continue to play with freedom because of the possibility that they can still reach the top 10.

The Newcastle squad is still much needing some reinforcements, present stars, as well as future stars, should be encouraged in the transfer window. Therefore, an energetic, young Frenchman by the name of Faitout Maouassa could prove to be an inspired signing from Rafa Benitez ahead of the new campaign.

The 19-year-old is valued at £4.95 million on Transfermarkt and normally plays on the wing but also has the ability to play as a left-back. Playing for Stade Rennes in Ligue 1, Maouassa has been a solid player for the French side, playing in a total amount of 20 games this season.

The youngster has electric pace and a good eye for a pass, making him a desirable player that could prove to be a star in the future. Rafa Benitez would undoubtedly be one of the better coaches to assist his growth, having proven his brilliant managerial ability throughout this Premier League campaign.

Landlord’s verdict: 

Newcastle fans love a success story and this could be just that should the Magpies secure the signature of Faitout Maouassa. With the French star only 19, he has years ahead to establish himself as a regular in the Premier League with Newcastle.
