Dubbed one of the fastest-rising players in the French Ligue 1, Rayan Cherki is gradually getting the interest he deserves even as some Premier League clubs monitor his progress.
The 20-year-old French midfielder is now in the spotlight, thanks to his impressive performance for Lyon.
Spanish football portal Fichajes.net reveals Newcastle United and Chelsea are looking to secure his services in the next summer transfer window.
Lyon, on the other hand, is said to be open to offers from top teams interested in signing the youngster.
Contract until 2025 and cheaper alternative for PL clubs
Rayan Cherki is contracted to Lyon until the summer of 2025. However, the club has not shut the doors on offers that could come for the player.
According to Transfermarkt, the midfielder is valued at around 25 million euros, which could be a cheaper option for top teams seeking his signature.
Chelsea and Newcastle United in head-to-head
Perhaps two of the busiest teams in the transfer market, Chelsea and Newcastle, have recently made moves as they seek to strengthen their squad further.
Chelsea especially have made several signings, including Moisés Caicedo, Enzo Fernández and Roméo Lavia. However, this could be another opportunity to re-enforce the midfield further.
Newcastle United, on the other hand, have relied heavily on the brilliance of Bruno Guimaraes and are open to new options. The Magpies were recently linked with Dani Ceballos and are continuously exploring other options in the market.
