Newcastle transfer news: Magpies 'could turn to' 23-goal star 'as the clock ticks down'
The Magpies have been linked to several players in recent weeks as new manager Eddie Howe looks to improve his side's chances of avoiding relegation this season.
What is the latest news involving Nketiah?
According to The Telegraph, Newcastle are now closing in on three last-minute deals, with Lyon's Bruno Guimaraes, Brighton's Dan Burn and Nketiah all potentially arriving at St. James' Park.
As a result, a switch to Newcastle appears to be on the cards after Crystal Palace's long-term interest in his services failed to progress.
What has Downie said about Nketiah?
Downie has revealed he doesn't doubt that Nketiah is someone on Newcastle's radar, but cast doubt over the stage negotiations are at between the relevant parties.
In an exclusive interview with GiveMeSport, the reporter said: “I don't doubt that he’s a target, and it's someone that they're interested in.
"Whether it's at that stage, I'm not too sure, but they do need to bring in another forward. He's one the club might turn to as the clock ticks down.”
Would Nketiah be a good signing for Newcastle?
Although Nketiah has had limited opportunities to showcase his true potential in the senior ranks, he has still illustrated his predatory instincts in front of goal on a regular basis.
