Newcastle United have agreed a fee with AS Monaco for striker Emmanuel Riviere, reports suggest.

The two clubs have agreed a fee of £6.3m for the 24-year-old striker, according to GFN France.

Riviere has previously been linked with a transfer to either Arsenal or West Bromwich Albion, but the Magpies look to have won the race for the Frenchman's signature.

The former France Under-21 player scored 10 goals in 30 appearances last season, helping Monaco finish in second place in their first year back in Ligue 1.
