Newcastle United are believed to be interested in Uruguay international Diego Rolan.

The 24-year-old is available for £5million from Bordeaux and is keen on a move to England this summer.

Rolan has attracted a bid from Fulham with the Cottagers eager to add him to their squad but sources in France say the goal-getter would prefer a move to the Premier League.

The South American has netted 37 times in 100 appearances for Bordeaux and with United now looking to sign a striker he fits the bill for Rafa Benitez’s side.
