Newcastle United boss Steve Bruce is said to be keen on Wylan Cyprien, as he looks to strengthen his side’s midfield.
Newcastle are said to have enquired for the Nice midfielder, as Steve Bruce looks to make additions to his side in the January transfer window.
Cyprien is apparently valued at £20 million by the French side, who sold Allan Saint-Maximin to Newcastle in the summer.
And it seems that Newcastle supporters would be extremely pleased if they were able to land Cyprien this summer.
Would be a great signing. He’s ASM mate as well— max (@SimplyAlmiron) January 14, 2020

He’s exactly what we need but we won’t get him at that price— NuFc For LIFE (@ToonBarmy59) January 14, 2020
He is class been linked with him a few years ago also— Caleb Rees (@CalebRees) January 14, 2020
Cyprien would offer Newcastle energy and creativity in midfield if he was to join.
The 24-year-old has hit seven goals in 19 appearances in Ligue 1 this term, which shows the scoring threat he carries from midfield.
If Cyprien was to move to Newcastle he would be in competition with the likes of Sean Longstaff, Jonjo Shelvey and Isaac Hayden for a first-team place.
