Newcastle United are keen to sign PSV Eindhoven forward Cody Gakpo during the January window, according to Foot Mercato.

PSV’s asking price of €10million (£8.5m) could freeze Lyon out of a move, though, as the Groupama Stadium natives will not sign players at any cost despite an intense interest in strengthening Rudi Garcia’s squad.

In other Newcastle United news, contract uncertainty has sparked two European giants to pay attention to a Toon star’s situation.

Luis Suarez made the move successfully when he joined Liverpool from Ajax in January 2011 for £22.8m though, going on to score 82 times in 133 games and see the Anfield natives challenge for the 2013/14 Premier League trophy.

Gakpo had been a lively attacking option at the Philips Stadion this season for head coach Mark van Bommel prior to his sacking in December, with the 20-year-old striking four goals and penning eight assists under the 2010 World Cup runner-up.

Players making the switch from the Dutch first-tier to the Premier League have often had mixed success, with Memphis Depay a £31million purchase from PSV for Manchester United in 2015 though the winger would leave Old Trafford in 2017 after scoring seven times in 53 games.

Gakpo has rarely been the first name on a teamsheet for PSV this season, having opened just seven of his 18 Eredivisie appearances alongside three starts in five Europa League Group Stage outings.
