Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette could make a surprise move to Newcastle United during the winter transfer window.
The Magpies were recently taken over by a Saudi-backed consortium, and they are expected to make high-profile signings in January.
A new striker is one of the main priorities, and football.london claims that Lacazette could be a realistic option for the Magpies.
The Frenchman won’t be signing a new deal with the Gunners, and this could pave the way for an exit at the beginning of the year.
He will enter the final six months of his contract in January. It is claimed that the Gunners may sell him rather than lose him for free.
The Magpies are likely to push for his services, but any deal may depend on the Gunners pursuing a suitable replacement for the striker.
With Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Nicolas Pepe off for African Cup of Nations duty in January, they could face a striker shortage.
Eddie Nketiah, Gabriel Martinelli and Folarin Balogun are all inexperienced, and Lacazette could end up staying with the Gunners.
