Newcastle are the latest Premier League club to be linked with a January move for Anderlecht star Kara Mbodji, reports the Chronicle.
The Magpies join Leicester City, Swansea, Crystal Palace and Brighton, and as many as three other top flights clubs, in the chase for the 27-year-old defender who has impressed at Anderlecht since his 2015 switch for Genk.
Rated at £10 million, the Senegal international, who has made 49 appearances for his national team, is thought to have already held talks with a number of representatives of the aforementioned club with regards to a January switch to England.
“Kara has attracted a lot of interest from Premier League sides, we held talks with representatives from those clubs in London last Sunday,” Ediz Balkan, Mbodji’s representative, revealed.
“There are six-seven clubs from the Premier League in talks but I can’t reveal the offers right now.”
Mbodji has three years remaining on his contract with the Belgian champions.
