The 23-year-old Serbian has not started a single Premier League game this season
Bordeaux have opened talks with Newcastle regarding a move for outcast striker Aleksandar Mitrovic, according to reports in France.
The 23-year-old Serbian has not started a single Premier League game this season with the likes of Dwight Gayle, Joselu and Ayoze Perez ahead of him in the pecking order.
Mitrovic’s future at St. James’ Park remains unclear and has been linked with a January departure due to his lack of game time.
And now RMC have claimed that Bordeaux are hoping to land him before the window closes and have already made contact with Newcastle about a potential switch.
The Ligue 1 club are currently battling against relegation from France’s top flight having taken just 20 points from their first 19 games of the season.
However, they are wary that a move for Mitrovic may be out of their price range but are hoping to strike a deal with Newcastle.
