Newcastle are tracking Nigerian U-23 international David Okereke who plays for Serie B side Spezia Calcio, according to reports.
The talented winger has also been linked with a host of Premier League and Serie A clubs following his outstanding performances this season.
Okereke helped his club reach the playoffs but were knocked out in the quarter finals following their 2-1 loss to Citadella.
The 21-year-old winger has notched up 10 goals and provided 12 assists in 30 appearances in Italy's second division.
He is a versatile attacker who played 15 times as a center-forward, 14 appearances on the right and played once from the left.
The academy graduate is highly regarded in Italy with Juventus and both Milan clubs, all in the running for the €8million-rated prodigy.
Okereke could act as cover for Newcastle's forward Ayoze Perez which will add more pace to the Magpies' attacking line.
