Premier League Clubs Go Head-To-Head In Pursuit Of Marseille Defender Nicolas N’Koulou

Posted by

Arsenal, Manchester City and Newcastle all looking to make summer bids for centre-back.

Marseille defender Nicolas N’Koulou is set to find himself at the centre of a three-way tussle for his signature this summer according to talkSport.

The Cameroon international has been putting in some impressive displays for the French giants this season as they attempt to battle with Qatari-backed PSG for the Ligue 1 title.

But Marseille are looking likely to have to sell a number of their players this summer due to financial constraints.

N’Koulou has been identified as a player who could bring in significant funds and is set to make a departure from the club come the summer.

Arsenal are thought to be long term admirers of the player and are keen to bring in defensive reinforcements this summer. Manager Arsene Wenger has become frustrated with the defensive lapses committed by his backline this season that have seen them drop valuable points in the race for a Champions League qualification spot.

Newcastle are keen to bring the player to St James’ Park and are hoping to tempt the player to join up with the growing contingent of players who have previously played in Ligue 1 currently in the Newcastle dressing room.

But Manchester City are also thought to be interested in the player and could tempt N’Koulou with a big money offer.
