VFB Stuttgart striker Serhou Guirassy is in the form of his life at the moment and his 16 goals from 13 games have caught the attention of a host of top clubs.

Given Alexander Isak’s injury record and his ability to potentially play wide when fit - it appears that this move would make sense to offer Callum Wilson further competition.

A player with Guirassy’s record would normally command a hefty price tag but given reports of his £15m release clause this deal may well be feasible for the Magpies.
