According to The Daily Star, Newcastle United are weighing up a move for former Middlesbrough striker Arnel Jakupovic.
Middlesbrough offloaded Arnel Jakupovic just four months ago but Newcastle are keen on bringing him back to England as they aim to bolster their squad in the summer.
Young forward Arnel Jakupovic would be seen as one for the future at Newcastle.
The Austria under 21 international was sold to Empoli from Middlesbrough for a mere £850,000 in January.
The promising young attacker made his debut for Empoli’s senior side earlier this month, coming on as a late substitute in their Serie A win over Bologna to partner former Middlesbrough striker Massimo Maccarone up front.
Despite recently leaving for a small fee, the striker, who can also play as a winger, is wanted by Newcastle United for a hefty £6m, according to this report by The Daily Star.
Newcastle are said to be impressed by his goal scoring record for Austria’s under 21 side and want to splash the cash to land the Empoli striker.
