Newcastle United are reportedly interested in the Iceland striker.
Newcastle United are expected to remain busy in the final few days of the summer transfer window, with Rafael Benitez keen to make a few additions to his squad.
Despite signing Joselu from Stoke City earlier this month, the Spaniard could still be interested in signing another striker, especially with Aleksandar Mitrovic’s future still hanging in the balance.
The report claims that the Magpies have checked on the Maccabi Tel Aviv star in Austria earlier this month, when he scored in his team’s Europa League win over Rheindorf Altach.
He was top scorer in Isreal last season with 19 league goals in 33 games, and his goal scoring exploits have attracted interest from the Magpies.
Kjartansson made his international debut in 2014, and till date has 14 caps under his belt. Given that he has always played in lower leagues, his signing could be a huge gamble.
