Newcastle enquire about £20m-rated Nice midfielder Wylan Cyprien who has attracted interest from Tottenham

Newcastle have made an enquiry about signing Nice midfielder Wylan Cyprien.

The 24-year-old is valued at around £20million by the French club and has also attracted attention from Tottenham.

Remember him being really good alongside Seri a couple of years ago but not sure about much more than that.

Upon initial reading he looks like a decent, mobile DM option if 20m is true though.

Another from that 2016-2017 OGC Nice team that played decently well with some other players we were linked with like Seri, Plea, Ricardo. Cyprien would play the deeper role and Seri would carry the ball forward a bit more and the two of them were one of the better midfield pairings in Ligue 1 that year. But that doesn't say a whole lot. And his career has stalled since. I haven't watched him much lately but I don't think he's thought of as such a hot prospect anymore and at 24 he's not really a development buy either. So, so glad we didn't buy Seri. (Wouldn't mind at all if we had bought Plea though...)

Was one of the best players in France, then got a really bad injury, has taken a while but apparently he's playing really well again.

Leads Nice in minutes this season it looks like he’s put the injuries behind him.

Has scored some cracking goals tbf.

His freekicks look amazing. He actually reminds of Marcos Assuncao from his Real Betis days who would strike freekicks in a similar fashion.

Watched a YouTube video of highlights (I know, I know), but it was outrageous. Looks like he could play DM too - positioning and strength showed up as often as a piece of silky skill or a stunning free kick.

7+3 in 19 games in the league, decent from CM. I don't think he's much of a dm though so I don't see the need if Gedson is in.

His name begs the question: Why?

But there's a great song ready for him:

My, My, My Cyprien
Wy, Wy, Wylan Cyprien
I could see, that guy was no good for me
But I was lost like a yid that no man was free
