Newcastle target Loic Remy could be sold in the January transfer window, French side Marseille have confirmed.
Remy has struggled with injury problems this season but Newcastle have still been heavily linked with a move for the Frenchman.
Boss Alan Pardew is keen to bring in a new forward in the transfer window following the sale of Demba Ba to Chelsea and the France international is thought to be his top target.
Marseille sporting director Jose Anigo has now confirmed the 26-year-old France international could be sold in the transfer window.
"Some English clubs are looking at our players and have not yet come knocking on the door," Anigo told L'Equipe.
"It will come. The only window of opportunity at the moment is for Loic Remy, if a big club comes for him and he is interested. We will see, but otherwise no one will go.
"His succession of injuries has hampered him, and saw him miss the Euros. But I think he is back. I can see in training there is a renewed confidence.
"But if he left, we still have a strong attack with (Andre-Pierre) Gignac and Jordan Ayew. We are well armed."
