Newcastle United are the latest club to be linked with a potential move for Sedan midfielder Yanis Bahloul who is attracting interest from a number of European sides.
The 17-year-old is yet to play for the first team, but has showed signs he has the ability to make it at the very highest level and has been linked with Lazio and AC Milan.
Despite representing a side that plays in Ligue 2, there is also said to be interest from the top division with the likes of Lille, Lyon and Marseille all believed to be keeping tabs on the midfielder.
However, the latest report on sport365, reports that Newcastle could attempt to lure him to the Premier League after bringing a number of French players to the club in recent seasons.
Newcastle boss Alan Pardew convinced Hatem Ben Arfa, Yohan Cabaye and Sylvain Marveaux to make the move from France to England and it seems he may once again attempt to use his persuasive skills.
The club have previously sent Graham Carr to watch the midfielder in action and after learning that he was available on a free at the end of the season are keen to enter the race for his signature.
