Newcastle ‘could join Arsenal’ in their pursuit of Marvin Martin, according to Metro, with the Toon considering a swoop next summer in the hopes of outfoxing their Barclays Premier League rivals.

Martin has been a star for Sochaux since joining the club in 2008, and has attracted attention from numerous European sides as a result.

And while Arsenal have been widely connected with the 23-year-old, Newcastle are also now reportedly hoping to speak to the LIgue 1 side about the possibility of purchasing Martin, who now has seven caps for the France national side under his belt.


Newcastle don’t have the best relationship with Sochaux, after the Ligue 1 club threatened to report the Toon in the summer when they alledgedly illegally pursued striker Modibo Maiga.

And their strained dealings could give Arsenal the edge as they move to secure a deal next summer, but Newcastle could still drive the price up for Martin’s services, ensuing a bidding war with Arsenal to get the midfielder on board.
