This man has been linked with Newcastle once again.

Rafa Benitez is keen to land a new frontman this summer and a familiar name has cropped up once again - while an out-of-favour Newcastle midfielder has been linked with a move away.

Here's the transfer news hitting the headlines today:

Newcastle United have been linked with striker Bas Dost. The 29-year-old striker has been frequently linked with a move to St James's Park in recent transfer windows and the Dutchman - who has netted 27 league goals for Sporting Lisbon this season - is set for crunch talks with his current club after he and several other players were injured by fans during a recent training session. That has sparked rumours of a departure, with Sevilla and Everton also reportedly interested (AD - Netherlands)
