Newcastle United are reportedly preparing a £50million bid to seal the transfer of Bayer Leverkusen winger Moussa Diaby.
The Frenchman has impressed in the Bundesliga and has attracted interest from Premier League sides like Arsenal and Manchester United in the past, though it now seems that big-spending Newcastle are his main admirers.

The Daily Mail claim that Newcastle are preparing to offer £50m for Diaby, though his club may try to get closer to £75m for the 22-year-old if possible.
