Newcastle are being linked with a potential move for Napoli attacker Khvicha Kvaratskhelia. That’s according to The Times, who claim they ‘want’ to land him ahead of the upcoming January transfer window. The 21-year-old, who is a Georgia international, has scored eight goals in 17 games so far this season and is being tipped for a bright future in the game.

Competition for winger

The Toon Army are apparently keen on landing PSV winger Cody Gakpo this winter. He stood out at the World Cup with Holland and bagged three goals in five matches in Qatar. The Mirror report that Real Madrid are poised to provide ‘competition’ in the race for his signature, with Manchester United also credited with an interest.

Attacker latest

Atletico Madrid attacker Matheus Cunha is another player who has been mentioned as a possible target for Newcastle next month. The former Sion, RB Leipzig, Hertha Berlin man has fallen out of favour and is expected to move on from Spain for a new challenge. According to 90min, Wolves want him but will have to fend off rival interest if they are to land him.
