Zahavi offers Lyon coach Genesio to Newcastle

Lyon coach Bruno Genesio is being linked with Newcastle United.

With Rafa Benitez's contract due to expire in June, there's doubts about the Spaniard staying on for next season.

L'Equipe says Genesio is under consideration at Newcastle should Benitez leave. Like Benitez, Genesio's deal also comes to an end at the end of the campaign.

OL president Jean Michel Aulas has also intimated he's prepared to allow Genesio to leave.

Genesio's agent is now Pini Zahavi and he has approached Newcastle to let them know he is interested.
