Newcastle have reportedly offered a “monster contract” to Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele as the Premier League club look to add quality to their squad.
Winger Allan Saint-Maximin may soon be joined at St. James Park by another tricky Frenchman if the club get their wish as Barcelona’s wantaway forward looks set to depart Camp Nou.
Football writer Rudy Galetti tweeted that Ousmane Dembele has received a “monster contract offer” from Newcastle United.

Dembele may not be the only addition from La Liga to soon don the black and white stripes as the Magpies are also set to recruit Atletico Madrid and England full back Keiran Trippier.
Newcastle United have found themselves rooted to the relegation zone this season, with an escape looking almost impossible with only one club previously avoiding the drop having had the same or less points than the Magpies currently have.
However, financial backing may permit Eddie Howe the greatest resources possible as the club look to maintain their top flight status for next year and build a new future for the club.
Dembele, meanwhile, finds himself further down the pecking order at Camp Nou as Ferran Torres has joined Barcelona from Manchester City.
