Newcastle United reportedly add Lille defender to their list of transfer targets ahead of the January transfer window.

Lille defender Sven Botman has reportedly emerged as a potential January transfer target for Newcastle United.

Sitting three points adrift of safety in the Premier League table, the Magpies will make a number of significant additions at the midway point of the campaign.

Given the amount of players who have six months left on their contract in England's top flight, Eddie Howe may focus his attention on players proven in English football.

However, according to The Athletic, the North-East outfit are contemplating whether to make a big-money approach for Botman.

The Netherlands international, who was a target for Wolverhampton Wanderers earlier this year, may allegedly be available for a fee in the region of £40m.

While Lille may be reluctant to part ways with a key player, the French side are also in a position where they need to boost their financial situation.
