Montpellier’s owner Louis Nicollin has ruled out the possibility of his most precious player to be joining Newcastle saying that it’s too little of a club for the French striker, but wouldn’t say no to an offer from Arsenal’s Arsene Wenger.
“Newcastle? They are too small for him,” Nicollin told RTL.
“Arsenal? We must see if Arsene Wenger is interested because he has Van Persie.
“€10m? He won’t go for that.
“Given that he still has more than two years left on his contract, he’ll cost a lot more, either €50m (£41.7m) or €60m (£50m).”
