NEWCASTLE United are understood to have tabled a bid for Olympique Lyonnais midfielder Clement Grenier.
The club is looking to replace Paris Saint-Germain-bound Yohan Cabaye before Friday night’s transfer deadline.
And Sky Sports report that Newcastle have tabled a “substantial” bid for Grenier.
Grenier has two years left on his contract, and Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas has indicated he is willing to listen to offers for the 23-year-old.
Cabaye, meanwhile, is set to complete his £20m move to PSG today.
