Newcastle United could make an approach to sign Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette at the end of the campaign.
The Frenchman has recently impressed for the Gunners in the Premier League, but there remain doubts over his club future.
His current deal expires in less then nine months, and reports claim that the hierarchy have no plans of extending his stay.
Gunners boss Mikel Arteta recently refused to rule out a new deal, but according to Sunday People, a renewal is unlikely.
The Tyneside outfit are likely to spend significantly next summer after their long-awaited takeover from a Saudi-led consortium.
Lacazette is open to staying in the Premier League after his Gunners stint, and he could be tempted to join the Magpies’ ambitious project.
The new owners at Newcastle plan to gradually build the squad, and the focus could initially be on experienced Premier League stars.
