Transfers: Newcastle consider Ignatius Ganago (Lens)


Since its passage under the Saudi flag, Newcastle has been probing the European market in depth with the firm intention of strengthening its workforce to extricate itself as quickly as possible from the relegation zone in the Premier League. The Magpies (18th) are particularly looking to boost their offensive sector. Last week they recruited New Zealand center forward Chris Wood, who arrived from Burnley for €30 million. But Newcastle are still looking to complete the recruitment of two attackers. It is in this sense that he looked at the situation of Ignatius Ganago.

The Magpies surveyed his entourage

The English club appreciates the versatility of the young striker from Lens (22), whom he could align on the front of the attack or on one side in the event of a transfer, and his experience, since the former Niçois has more than a hundred professional matches (102).

Only, it is not said that Lens is a seller. The artesian club is not under an obligation to sell and Franck Haise, the Sang et Or coach, likes to rely on strong competition to get the best out of his players. Ganago, currently at CAN with Cameroon, has played 16 L1 matches this season, for 7 starts and 3 goals.

If no contact has yet been established between the RCL and Newcastle, the English club has already contacted the entourage of Ganago, under contract until 2024, to find out the feasibility of a transfer.
