AS Monaco striker Emmanuel Riviere has been offered to Newcastle United.

The Evening Chronicle says United are on a list of top-flight clubs Riviere has been offered to in recent months.

Riviere has netted 13 goals in 33 games for moneybags Monaco this term and the 24-year-old is understood to be keen to make the move to the Premier League.

The striker would be available for around £4.5m, but Newcastle have others on their shortlist ahead of him.
