Brighton's Anthony Knockaert in action with Sheffield Wednesday's Ross Wallace
The Magpies may have already added a new winger in Matt Ritchie, but manager Rafael Benitez appears keen to add another wide man following Georginio Wijnaldum's departure to Liverpool.
Brighton’s Anthony Knockaert looks dejected
Benitez's first choice seems to be French star Knockaert, who has now proven himself as a top Championship star during spells with Leicester City.
Knockaert, 24, hit 16 goals in 95 games for Leicester City before heading to Belgium with Standard Liege, but after just seven months there - which saw him score seven goals - he headed back to England to join Brighton.

Having played a key part in Brighton's run to the play-offs, Knockaert has again established himself as one of the Football League's top stars, notching five goals and six assists in just 21 games.
Now, Newcastle are attempting to splash big cash on the left-footed winger, but have so far failed to tempt Brighton into selling their star man.
Since the news emerged, Brighton fans have been taking to Twitter to give their views on Newcastle's pursuit of Knockaert, with many suggesting that he's worth £15m in the current market - more than twice what Newcastle have offered.
Others suggested that chairman Tony Bloom won't sell Knockaert easily, but some were concerned that Newcastle will return with another huge offer due to the huge budget available to manager Benitez.
If we've got any realistic ambition to win promotion this year, then we shouldn't be selling Knockaert for £15m, let alone £10m. #bhafc— Mark Nickols (@mark_nickols) July 30, 2016
If Knockaert does leave, I want at least £15m. Obviously I hope he doesn't though. #bhafc— ️ (@T_BHAFC) July 29, 2016
My main worry with Knockaert is the funds that Newcastle have at their disposal, hopefully look elsewhere. #BHAFC— BHAFC News (@BHAFC_NEWS) July 29, 2016
Realistically knockaert on last seasons performances and today's market if he goes it HAS to be for more than 10mill #bhafc— Ben Thompson (@Seagulls25) July 29, 2016
Considering we've apparently rejected 5 million for Stephens, we would never accept 10 million for Knockaert #bhafc— C.C.S (@MagicalManu19) July 30, 2016
Do you want to see Newcastle make another bid for Knockaert?
