Newcastle could still be in the hunt for prolific striker Bas Dost, according to Dutch newspaper AD.
Dutch striker Bas Dost has averaged a goal a game since he moved to Sporting CP in 2016, but it has been reported that the 6ft 5 colossus is open to leaving the Portuguese club this summer, putting Newcastle on high alert.
The 29-year-old striker has scored 194 career goals but could be keen on a new start elsewhere after being injured in an attack by a group of Sporting supporters.
Dutch newspaper AD report that Sevilla are also interested in the €40m striker, but if Newcastle can match their offer, they would have a good chance of signing him.
Bas Dost’s scoring ability is no secret and it’s surprising that more clubs aren’t vying for his signature this summer.
The striker would offer Newcastle an aerial threat and give them a different option going forward.
He has scored in Holland, Germany and Portugal so you can be sure that he would adapt to the Premier League.
The only question is whether Newcastle would be prepared to pay the necessary fee for the player, but if they get anything close to the return that Sporting CP got with him, it would be a very wise investment for the club.
