Newcastle United are reportedly set to sign the Nigeria international.
Newcastle United have been linked with another striker - and it's not Arsenal's Lucas Perez.
Speculation is rife that Newcastle boss Rafael Benitez wants to bring in the Spaniard, with Benitez already speaking to Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger about him, according to The Chronicle.
He is hardly a household name, though the 24-year-old hitman does have a decent goalscoring record and netted 17 Bundesliga goals last term to win the Golden Boot.
Kayode, who has 30 goals in 62 league matches for the Austrian side overall, might add something to Newcastle's attack and although a lot fans of the North-East club aren't overly familiar with him, they like the sound of him.
Would be amazing to see him in the Prem though. Been hyping him up for years now and thankfully got to see his debut for Nigeria live— Mitch (@MitcheIIProcter) August 10, 2017
Decent player, seems to score half of his appearances everywhere he's been, scored 30 in 67 for FK Austria Wien #NUFC— Alex Simpson (@magic_magpie) August 11, 2017
He looks okay but where not signing him anyways— FC FC (@MurphyMenace) August 11, 2017
He fast but rubbish— Lucas Heslop (@lucas_heslop187) August 11, 2017
Hmmm.. Olarenwaju Kayode .. Could this be another Mitro? #NUFC— Ian Rawlings (@ianrawlingsnufc) August 11, 2017
Benitez, who need a striker due to Aleksandar Mitrovic and Dwight Gayle being rather unproven Premier League marksmen, is gearing up for Newcastle's first game of the season as Tottenham Hotspur visit St James's Park on Sunday.
