Newcastle, Southampton watching Nice striker Evann Guessand

Nice striker Evann Guessand is attracting major Premier League transfer interest.

The Daily Mail says Southampton and Newcastle are among the clubs on the trail of Nice teenager Guessand.

The 19-year-old striker has scored seven goals and made four assists during an impressive loan spell at Lausanne Sport in Switzerland.

He scored a fabulous late equaliser on Sunday with a scorpion-style flick over his own shoulder with the heel of his right foot as Lausanne came back from two down against FC Zurich.

Guessand is over six feet tall, strong, fast and highly technical. He signed his first professional contract with Nice, making his debut for them in the French Cup in January last season.
