Newcastle plan bid for Lille defender Sven Botman

Newcastle United are interested in Lille defender Sven Botman.

The Holland international has emerged as a top January target for Newcastle's new owners.

The Toon plan a major spending spree over the winter market as they seek to drive the team away from the dropzone.

Botman, 21, attracted major interest from the Premier League over the summer after helping LOSC to last season's Ligue 1 title.

Newcastle are expected to make an opening offer of £40m to Lille for Botman in the coming weeks.
