It is no surprise that Newcastle United are on the hunt for a striker this summer.
The Magpies only netted 39 times in the Premier League last season, with forwards Dwight Gayle and Joselu only scoring ten goals between them.
It had been previously rumoured that prolific Dutch striker Bas Dost could be on his way to St. James’ Park, but reports suggest he has elected to join Fenerbahce instead.

Sampdoria striker Duvan Zapata is one of the latest strikers linked with a move to Newcastle following an impressive season in which he scored 11 goals and assisted four in Serie A.

We asked Newcastle fans in our poll if they wanted to sign the 27-year-old, valued at £18million on Transfermarkt, and it appears the Toon Army are rather fond of the Colombian striker.
73 per cent of those polled said they do want Newcastle to sign Zapata, with 27 per cent clearly reluctant to fork out their precious cash on one player.
The 6ft2 powerhouse can dominate defenders and would be ideally suited for the physical battle of the Premier League, and Newcastle fans seem to agree.
