Brazilian striker Wesley Moraes is interesting Newcastle and West Ham.
The Geordies have watched the 22-year-old multiple times this season as he racked up 17 goals for Club Brugge.
Italian giants Lazio are also in the market for the powerful 6ft 3ins striker who also got 10 assists.
Asked where his future will be, Moraes said: “I do not know yet, I have a preference for the Premier League, but we’ll see what happens, I have to give it a go.”
Rafa Benitez has Salomon Rondon as his top target but the club also want younger recruits.
Newcastle can’t act in the transfer market until they resolve their contract talks with Benitez which started last week.
Manager and club spent the weekend weighing up the situation with Benitez wanting guarantees over a budget and targets, and the club not willing to hand over total spending power.
