Newcastle are hoping to bolster their attacking options further before the transfer window shuts with both Danny Ings and Ivan Cavaleiro in their sights, TEAMtalk has been told.
England international Ings has been told he can leave Liverpool by Jurgen Klopp, who is looking for around £20million for a striker who rates highly.
Southampton and Crystal Palace are keen but not at Liverpool’s price – whilst Newcastle have also stepped in but again they would not get anywhere near £20m. We have learnt Rafa Benitez’s side have asked Liverpool about a loan deal with a view to a permanent deal, given the player’s injury record.
Newcastle, who asked Arsenal if they can take Danny Welbeck earlier this summer, are also now in for Portuguese international winger Ivan Cavaleiro.
The 24-year-old has already snubbed interest from Huddersfield this summer, whilst Fulham are also keen.
Now after Wolves snapped up Adama Traore from Middlesbrough, his future looks increasingly uncertain and Rafa Benitez would love to take him to St James’ Park.
Newcastle are willing to offer Wolves cash, which they may be tempted by as they look to make further signings themselves before Thursday’s deadline.
