Metz, Osmanlispor keen on Newcastle United forward Emmanuel Riviere?

Newcastle United forward Emmanuel Riviere reportedly attracts interest from both Metz and Osmanlispor.

Metz and Osmanlipsor have both reportedly shown an interest in Newcastle United forward Emmanuel Riviere.

In 2014, the Magpies spent £5m to sign Riviere from AS Monaco, but the Frenchman has contributed just three goals in 31 appearances in all competitions.

After returning from a loan spell at Osasuna, Riviere remains down the pecking order at St James' Park but it appears that the versatile attacker has emerged as a transfer target for teams in France and Turkey.

According to the Newcastle Chronicle, Metz and Osmanlipsor are prepared to offer him an escape route from the North-East and Newcastle are unlikely to stand in his way should they receive a solid offer.

Last season, Metz were one of the lowest scorers in Ligue 1 as they finished in 14th place in the standings, while Osmanlispor were similarly disappointing in the final third as they claimed 13th spot in Turkey's top flight.

The 27-year-old has one year remaining on his contract.
