Newcastle enquire about exciting Rennes winger Kamaldeen Sulemana after being put off for £35m valuation of Leeds’ Jack Harrison
- Newcastle United have asked Rennes about Ghana winger Kamaldeen Sulemana
- Known by his first name, Kamaldeen joined the French club last year for £17m
- Newcastle turned their back on Jack Harrison after Leeds set a £35m price tag
Newcastle have asked about Rennes winger Kamaldeen Sulemana.
The skilful Ghana international is regarded as one of the brightest prospects playing in Europe and has had interest from the likes of Bayer Leverkusen and Ajax.
Rennes paid £17m to sign the 20-year-old from Nordsjaelland last year and he is now valued around £30m.
Kamaldeen Sulemana was a success in Denmark before moving to French side Rennes in 2021
Simply known as Kamaldeen, the 20-year-old scored four goals in ten Ligue 1 matches last season, as well as three appearances in the Europa Conference.
Newcastle had considered Leeds United’s Jack Harrison but were put off by his £35m valuation so what Rennes want up front for Kamaldeen will be key to any deal progressing.
The north-east club are seeking to improve their options up front for the forthcoming season after missing out on previous target Hugo Ekitike.
Known primarily by his first name, forward Kamaldeen has played several times for Ghana
