Newcastle United are reportedly looking to increase their firepower in the new year with a move for a Serie A striker.
Rafael Benitez’s men grabbed their first win of the Premier League season against Watford last time out but goals have been hard to come by all season.
And according to reports in Italy, the Magpies have their eyes on Bologna frontman Mattia Destro.
The 27-year-old has struggled for game time this season – making only two starts in the 10 matches he has been involved in.
The former Italy frontman could cost as little as £4million, which could prove top be a snip for a player who has scored 73 goals in 219 career appearances.
