Newcastle United have stepped up their £70 million pursuit of Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic, with spies spying on him in Serbia.

NEWCASTLE are intensifying their pursuit of Serbia striker Dusan Vlahovic.

They’ll be in the hunt when Fiorentina hold an auction, as SunSport previously reported.

Toon’s top spies were on hand to watch the hitman in action as his country beat Portugal to qualify for the World Cup.

If the price is right, Vlahovic, 21, may be sold in January.

According to those close to the deal, the fee will be large, but reports of £70 million are excessive.

Newcastle are on the lookout for players from outside the Premier League, as they will find it difficult to sign talent from their Premier League rivals.

Manchester City and Tottenham are fans of Vlahovic but do not have a pressing need to sign him in the coming window, whereas Newcastle do.

Toon are still looking for a new director of football, with Frank McPartland expected to remain as a consultant to co-owner Amanda Staveley.

The club is debating whether to hire a footballer or someone with administrative experience.

Despite the behind-the-scenes changes, manager Eddie Howe will have the final say on signings.

If he can get Premier League experience, that would be ideal.

Newcastle are looking for two full-backs, a centre-back, a midfielder, and a striker, but they are aware that they will be asked to pay top dollar wherever they go.

Last month, Staveley promised that St James’ Park would receive “heavy investment.”

“We’re going to invest heavily, obviously,” she said.

However, we must do so in accordance with Premier League regulations.

“We’ll have to follow the Financial Fair Play rules.”

I believe everyone understands that we will invest as much as possible.

“However, we won’t just invest in footballers, budgets, or transfers; we’ll invest in everything.”

We want to make certain that we are investing at all levels.

“We have to look at the numbers, and as we discussed, there are rules and regulations. We have to make sure the revenue is coming in, and the Premier League has rules on how we invest.”
