Newcastle ready to rival West Ham for Ligue 1 defender after Botman deal stalls

Newcastle ready to rival West Ham for Ligue 1 defender after Botman deal stalls

Botman deal stalls

Newcastle United and their fans were dealt a blow on Monday as news broke that talks had broken down between them and Lille for defensive starlet Sven Botman.

The French club, who had already rejected a 35 million euro bid from the Magpies, are refusing to sell their young talent, even amid the high fees that mega-rich Newcastle are willing to offer, having already added to the coffers with the sale of Jonathan Ikone to Fiorentina this window.

Now, with five days until their relegation six-pointer against Watford, the Magpies have been left scrambling as they look to add a new centre-half, and now look set to go toe-to-toe with West Ham for another young star.

West Ham and Newcastle to do battle

Now, as per reports coming out of France, both clubs are willing to splash out on Monaco centre-back Benoit Badiashile.

According to the report, both clubs have made contact with Monaco over a potential deal for the youngster, who has previously been on the radar of Manchester United.

West Ham, of course, are looking to strengthen too, and although they have been boosted by the early return of Kurt Zouma, Angelo Ogbonna remains sidelined for the rest of the season.

Will Newcastle be able to beat them to the punch?
