The highly-rated 20-year-old has been linked with The Magpies for a number of months talks have taken place between the Premier League club and his agent.
The French youth international said today: "They (Newcastle Utd) are in touch with my agent.
"Now, I take care of my own work and nothing else.
"My agent does not put all that in my mind so I can continue to work in the best way.
"I do my job, many young people take it too seriously.
"Yes, sure it's flattering.
"But I will not give up until one day I am at the highest level. But now I work for the team."
"I would love to follow in the footsteps of former Guingamp stars such as Didier Drogba and Florent Malouda.
"I always look to such examples, it helps me move forward."
