Newcastle United are reportedly set to battle Inter Milan for an 8million striker

The Magpies are expected to be busy in the summer window, with manager Rafa Benitez keen to strengthen in a number of positions - provided he remains on Tyneside.

And Okerke is the latest name to be linked with a move to St James's Park after a stellar season.

The Sun claim that the striker is being eyed by Benitez as he bids to add to his forward line.

Okerke, 21, netted ten goals for the Serie B side this term while providing a further 12 assists in what has proved to be a breakthrough season.
