Widespread reports in Portugal today, by prominent websites O Jogo and A Bola, detail that Newcastle are after Sporting Lisbon striker Ricky van Wolfswinkel.
Just two points off the relegation zone and after a home defeat to Reading, Newcastle truly appear to be attacking this transfer window with gusto and a move for the Sporting Lison hitman is the first time they have moved their radar from Ligue 1.
Newcastle have reportedly been scouting Van Wolfswinkel for some time and the Dutch striker is on a list of possible reinforcements for Alan Pardew’s side.
Alongside Newcastle, Serie A teams Fiorentina and Napoli are also tracking the 24-year-old striker, according to Portuguese websites today.
O Jogo add that Newcastle will have to pay 12 million euros if they wish to secure Ricky van Wolfswinkel from struggling Sporting Lisbon.
