The young Frenchman has recently shone for his country and is a wanted commodity.
Newcastle United fans are, by and large, impressed and satisfied with the business done by the club this summer so far. The recent arrivals of Georginio Wijnaldum and Alexsandar Mitrovic represent a true show of intent from The Toon.
However, one transfer rumour not impressing them is that linking Olivier Kemen with a move away from the club.
It comes after he impressed as captain of the French under-19 side at the recent UEFA European Under-19 Championships in Greece, where Les Bleus made it to the semi-finals.
The Cameroon born midfielder is highly rated among the fans at St James' Park but is yet to get a chance in the first-team since his move from FC Metz in July 2013.
Fans have taken to Twitter to generally rally around the idea of keeping Kemen who they feel could go on to become a stalwart of the Newcastle team for years to come.
One fan even went as far to say that Newcastle would regret his departure in a similar fashion to Manchester United fans sense of remorse over Paul Pogba.
Here is some of the best reaction from Twitter…
How can we deem Kemen not good enough if Champions League clubs want him? #NUFC— Andy (@andyedmeads) July 22, 2015
Why are #NUFC so keen on moving Kemen? Young with lots of potential. Was captain of U-19 French side. Doesn't make sense.— NUFC 360 (@NUFC360) July 21, 2015
Letting Oliver Kemen go will be a horrible mistake. That kid has potential to be a proper rising star for #NUFC— NUFC HQ (@NUFC_HQ) July 21, 2015
How are we suppose to have squad depth if we're selling the young players?! (Abeid and Kemen) #NUFC— Ryan (@Ryan_Rosee) July 21, 2015

Worrying rumours about Olivier Kemen - would be gutted if there is any truth in him leaving without making an appearance for #nufc— Toon Stew (@toonarmyblog) July 21, 2015
Unless we are getting silly money why are we entertaining bids/ letting clubs talk to Kemen?? #nufc— Toon Owl (@wiseowlllll) July 21, 2015
