Newcastle United spell

Thauvin struggled during his time in England, as the France international failed to make a huge impact during his time at Newcastle.

The winger joined Newcastle from Marseille in the summer of 2015 for a transfer fee reported by The Guardian to be worth £12 million.

The 25-year-old struggled to make an impact at St. James’ Park, and after a loan spell at Marseille, moved to the French club on a permanent contract in the summer of 2017.

According to the CIES Football Observatory, Thauvin’s value is now €76.8 million (£67.1m).
