​Newcastle keen on Toulouse keeper Lafont

Per L'Equipe in France, Newcastle United are very interested in signing the Toulouse goalkeeper Alban Lafont in the summer.

The youngster is only 19, yet he is already regarded as one of the top goalkeeping prospects in the world. He is ranked as highly as Gianluigi Donnarumma, the Milan goalkeeper.

Newcastle will face competition from Napoli, who are set to lose Pepe Reina to a free transfer.

But the Napoli president Aurelio Di Laurentiis is not sure about paying a big fee for a 19-year-old, which would give Newcastle a chance to complete the deal.

Everything would hinge on Newcastle staying in the Premier League.
