Spartak Moscow striker Ze Luis is said to be a transfer target for Newcastle this summer should the Magpies fail to agree a deal with West Brom for Salomon Rondon.
According to teamtalk, Newcastle remain keen on signing Rondon on a permanent deal in the summer, but the Baggies asking price is a potential stumbling block.
The report suggests West Brom are demanding a fee in the region of £16million for the Venezuelan, who has scored nine goals and created five assists in the league during his loan spell with Newcastle this season.
And Ze Luis is said to be one of the Magpies’ potential replacements for Rondon, with the Cape Verde international reportedly worth just £10million.
The 28-year-old has scored eight goals in 17 league appearances in the Russian Premier League this season, helping his side challenge for a Champions League qualification spot.
Ze Luis has also impressed for Spartak in the Europa League, scoring three goals in six appearances in the competition.
Four other strikers Newcastle could target.
Speculation regarding Dzeko’s future at Roma continues to grow and the 33-year-old would be a brilliant piece of business for Newcastle, though his wages could be an issue.
Carroll made a name for himself at Newcastle, earning a £35million move to Liverpool following his spell at St James Park. The striker looks set to be available on a free transfer this summer, and could be an ideal like for like replacement for Rondon.
Another who looks set to be available on a free transfer this summer, and Welbeck is another who would be a brilliant signing for the Magpies. Similarly to Dzeko, however, wages could be a stumbling block.
The striker has impressed for Aston Villa during his loan spell from Chelsea this season scoring 22 goals in the Championship, and the Blues could look to loan him to a Premier League side next season.
