Wylan Cyprien is a long-term target of Newcastle and could be a decent addition for Steve Bruce’s side. He would provide a good variety to Newcastle United’s midfield.

According to the report, “Newcastle United have been tracking Nice midfielder Wylan Cyprien. The Evening Chronicle says Newcastle are continuing to monitor the situation of Cyprien of Nice. The 25-year-old midfielder was on United’s radar in January with Steve Bruce keen to bring some energy to his team. With Isaac Hayden thought to be unsettled and the future of Sean and Matt Longstaff uncertain, Bruce could have to make a raid for the former Lens man this summer. At Nice, Cyprien has raised his game to a new level under coach Patrick Vieira.”


A big money bid from Newcastle could tempt Nice into selling their prized asset.

Nevertheless, Cyprien stands as an excellent option for Newcastle.

Stylistically, he would be a great fit in Newcastle.

How strong that interest is and whether Newcastle United will make a move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
