Rivière has completed a move to Newcastle from French side Monaco for an undisclosed fee.

Rivière picked up 13 goals in 36 appearances last season for Monaco and will give the Magpies a new look up front. With Loic Remy gone, Newcastle will lean on Rivière for goals. It will be interesting to see how the 24-year-old will link up with fellow countryman and new signing, Remy Cabella. Both could emerge as mid-range fantasy options, with the latter having even more upside than that.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Riviere is undergoing a medical at Newcastle ahead of a move from AS Monaco, according to Lee Ryder of Chronicle Live.

The 24-year-old had 10 goals and two assists in 19 Ligue 1 appearances last season and continues the French additions that manager Alan Pardew has brought in this summer. If he can garner consistent starts, Riviere should be a decent fantasy play.

Rivière scored a 57th minute goal in Monaco's win over Marseille on Sunday.

Rivière, who has drawn transfer interest from abroad, figures to be vital in Monaco's title chase. With star striker Falcao (knee) out for the remainder of this season and new signing Lacina Traore being loaned to Premiership side Everton, Rivière now becomes Monaco's focal point up front. While the 23-year-old may not receive the headlines that some of his teammates do, Rivière's nine goals in 18 appearances (12 starts) warrant applause. Further, with Monaco's stable of attackers, Rivière should be afforded more scoring opportunities now that he leads the line for the French club.

Rivière has been the subject of a £5 million transfer bid from Stoke City, the Stoke Sentinel reports.

Rivière moved to big spending Monaco in January of last year and has since scored 12 goals in 29 league appearances (13 starts). However, with Stoke City in desperate need for another striker, the Premiership side has targeted the 23-year-old Frenchman to provide a boost to its attack. At the moment, it's unclear whether Monaco is open to selling Rivière after just one year at the club.

Rivière has been linked with a loan move to Stoke City from Ligue 1 side Monaco, the Stoke Sentinel reports.

Rivière has impressed during his first season with Monaco, scoring eight goals in just 16 appearances (11 starts). However, given the French side's deep attacking ranks, it's thought the 23-year-old could use more regular playing time elsewhere and the Potters are certainly in the market for a striker.

Rivière scored a 23rd minute goal in Monaco's 3-0 win over Nice on Tuesday.

Rivière headed home from the center of the penalty area to bring his season total to seven goals in 12 league appearances (seven starts). While fellow striker Falcao remains sidelined with a slight thigh strain, it's encouraging to see Rivière take advantage of his opportunity to lead Monaco's attack.

Rivière scored in the 79th minute of Sunday's match against Marseille.

Rivière came on as a 73rd minute substitute after fellow striker Falcao went down with an ankle injury. The 23-year-old's goal came from outside of the box and marked the Frenchman's fifth goal through four Ligue 1 matches this season.

Rivière netted a hat-trick in Sunday's 4-1 win over Montpellier.

Rivière, who scored in last weekend's season opener, was rewarded with a starting role in Sunday's fixture and certainly made the most of his opportunity. The 23-year-old used his right foot, left foot, and head to score his respective three goals, likely cementing his place in the first-team squad for the foreseeable future.
