Newcastle Eyeing Move for Highly Rated French Midfielder

Newcastle United are reportedly interested in signing 18-year-old French playmaker, Doue, before the transfer window closes. The Magpies have gathered information about the youngster and are keen to bring him to St. James’ Park. However, they will face competition from German club Borussia Dortmund.

Doue, who is highly rated in France, has already established himself as a key player for Rennes this season. With two goals and an assist across all competitions, he has showcased his creativity and control in the midfield.

The talented midfielder can operate as both a central midfielder and a number ten, adding technical ability, vision, and composure to the Newcastle midfield. Moving to the Premier League would be a significant step in his career, and the prospect of playing for Newcastle in the coming seasons could be enticing for him.

Newcastle’s financial strength puts them in a good position to secure the deal, but it remains to be seen how the situation develops. The Magpies are in need of more depth in their squad, and Doue would be a quality long-term investment for the club.

Doue currently has a contract with Rennes until the summer of 2026, and his current club will be looking to recoup as much as possible for their prized prospect.
