By on December 30, 2010 - 30 views

Newcastle United are eyeing up a move for Ivory Coast international and Lille striker, Gervinho.

This is not the first time that the 23-year-old has attracted the interest of a Premier League club, with reports in the Daily Mail on Tuesday that Liverpool have already  tabled an £11m bid for the talent.

It would take big money to lure the striker to Tyneside but international team-mate, Cheik Tiote, would be happy to see him make the switch to the Geordie club.

When asked by the official NUFC website who he would like to see link up with him at Newcastle, the midfielder said: “Gervinho, who plays for Lille as a forward or winger. He is really good, 23 years old and a great player.”
