Nice midfielder Arnaud Lusamba in talks with Newcastle, Leicester

Nice midfielder Arnaud Lusamba is attracting major Premier League interest.

France's Soccer Link reports Lusamba's representatives have been spoken to by Newcastle and Leicester as well as Bordeaux, Lyon, Strasbourg and Werder Bremen.

City, given their recent success in the Premier League and fine League form this season, are being linked with a clutch of players despite the uncertainty the coronavirus pandemic has brought around the transfer window.

Newcastle, meanwhile, are on the verge of being taken over by a fund backed by the riches of Saudi Arabia

France Under-19 international Lusamba has managed just 31 outings for Nice since he joined the club, though and spent last campaign on loan at Belgian side Cercle Brugge.
