He has a £9.5 million release clause, he would be a simply fantastic addition if Ba leaves. Apparently Newcastle is in the lead to get him. I hope this is true, it's hard to tell. He would also be our number 1 striker during the ACoN and I would be perfectly ok with this because he is a fantastic player. I will even go so far as saying I would prefer it if we sell Ba and get either Giroud, more realistic, or Luuk De Jong, more expensive but he will be a star.
