According to reports from The Daily Star, Newcastle believe they’ve won the race to sign Cameroon international Vincent Aboubakar.
On loan from FC Porto, the 25-year-old enjoyed a solid season at Besiktas last term, netting twelve times in the Turkish top flight to help them lift the Super Lig title.
He also boasts all the physicality you’d want from a Premier League striker and a decent return at international level, with 17 goals and 57 caps for the Indomitable Lions.

Transfermarkt value the 6 foot striker at £8.5million while The Daily Star suggest the Magpies are set to pay £500k more. So, Toon Army fans, where do you stand regarding this potential transfer deal? Let us know if you’d back a summer swoop for the FC Porto man by voting in the poll below…
