English Premier League trio West Ham United, Newcastle United, Southampton and Scottish giants Celtic Glasgow are reportedly working on recruiting Jean Pierre Nsame from Swiss champions Young Boys Bern.
TeamTalk is reporting that the quartet are in a race for the signature of 28-year-old Cameroonian forward who is closing on a century of goals for Young Boys Bern in four seasons.
The lethal Cameroonian striker has been a main man under coach Gerardo Seoane since arriving the Club four seasons ago.
The former FC Servette forward has scored 25 goals and counting in 37 games this season so far and has scored a hat-trick on two occasions.
Kick442.com understands Newcastle United has tried establishing contacts with the forward’s entourage but face competition for the player’s signature.
Nsamé only moved to Young Boys Berne two years ago from FC Servette, on a five-year-deal.
He has grown into a veritable source of goals for coach Gerardo Seoane, scoring with ease.
In all, Nsamé who is rated at €5 Million according to Transfermarkt has scored 97 goals, providing 20 assists in 168 games for the Swiss Super League Champions
The erstwhile SCO Angers goal poacher is an excellent and affordable option for any suitor, though it is as difficult to see him stay at the Stadion Wankdorf beyond this season as it is going to lure him away.
Celtic are looking to strengthen and compete with Rangers next season while Newcastle are in the market for more bodies in attack with European football almost certain next term.
The Douala-native will complete his season in a few weeks time and enter a possibly very busy holiday period with multiple speculations about his future.
Nsame is a full Cameroon international with one cap for the five-times African champions dating back to September 2017.
