French midfielder Rayan Cherki has been linked with a move away from the club at the end of the season.
A report from Fichajes claims that Chelsea and Newcastle United are keen on securing his services. The 20-year-old is highly rated across Europe and he could prove to be a quality playmaker for the two clubs.
Chelsea could certainly use more craft and technical ability in the final third. The 20-year-old is capable of operating as a winger as well as a central attacking midfielder.
As far as Newcastle are concerned, they need more quality in the squad. They will be hoping to compete in the Champions League regularly and win trophies. They need to bring in quality players like Turkey in the coming months.
The report states that the midfielder is valued at €25 million and the likes of Chelsea and Newcastle certainly have the financial muscle to pay the asking price. It will be interesting to see how the situation develops.
The 20-year-old technically gifted midfielder will want to compete at the highest level in the near future and the opportunity to move to the Premier League will be quite tempting for him.
He will want to sign for a club competing in the UEFA Champions League and it remains to be seen whether Chelsea or Newcastle can convince the player to join them after finishing outside the top four.
