Newcastle open talks for Ligue 1 pair Ekitike and Badiashile

Newcastle United are shopping in France for long-term additions.

While welcoming Chris Wood from Burnley today, Newcastle chiefs also have an eye on the long-term.

As such, the Toon are eyeing Reims striker Hugo Ekitike, 19, and AS Monaco's 20 year-old defender Benoit Badiashile.

Like Ekitike, Badiashile is also open to a move to England. However, the 20-year-old is currently injured, and the prognosis is unclear.

Newcastle are in talks with Monaco for the stopper, while Sky Sports says a €25m offer is being readied for Ekitike.
