Newcastle set to sign Marseille winger

Newcastle are finally set to sign winger Florian Thauvin from French giants Marseille.

The Sunday Mirror reports that Newcastle are confident of signing Thauvin in a £12million deal this week.

Reports claim the Magpies have been chasing the 22-year-old winger all summer.

Thauvin is keen on a move to St James’ Park and if the deal goes through it will take Newcastle’s summer spend to £50million.

Thauvin will become the fifth signing of this window, following the arrival of Chancel Mbemba, Gini Wijnaldum, Aleksandar Mitrovic and Ivan Toney earlier this summer.
