Arsenal and Newcastle are interested in signing Wolfsburg striker Wout Weghorst, according to reports.

The 27-year-old has scored 20 goals for the Bundesliga club this season to alert the two Premier League sides.

German outlet Bild claim Wolfsburg will allow Weghorst to leave for around £32million when the transfer window reopens.

Arsenal could be on the lookout for a striker with uncertainty over the futures of Pierre-Emerick Aubaemyang and Alexandre Lacazette.

Aubaemyang, who has been linked to Barcelona, has just one year remaining on his contract, while Gunners boss Mikel Arteta has preferred youngster Eddie Nketiah to Lacazette at times this term.

Newcastle could have cash to splash if their proposed Saudi-backed takeover goes through over the forthcoming weeks.

Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund (PIF), which is led by crown prince Mohammed bin Salman, have been linked with a £300m purchase of the Magpies for months.

Newcastle are in desperate need of firepower as winger Miguel Almiron is their top scorer – with only SIX goals this season.
