Newcastle boss Eddie Howe has three more centre-back transfer options after double blow

Benoit Badiashile

The 20-year-old is incredibly into his fourth season of senior football at Monaco, and has racked up appearances at various youth levels with France. 

According to The Athletic, Newcastle considered Badisahile as a back-up option if the deal for primary target Botman fell through – a position they appear to find themselves in. 

However, the Toon are wary that Monaco are likely to demand some serious cash for a centre-back deemed starting quality in Ligue 1 at such a young age. 

With Howe keeping one eye on the young Frenchman, it is clear that Newcastle are not only looking for players who can provide an instant impact, but those who can set them up for the future too.
