Newcastle striker could leave before the transfer deadline.
Leeds are keen on signing the striker according to the report, although that is in contrast to a Yorkshire Evening Post story that says the Whites have no interest in the player.
Meanwhile, Wolves are Sky Bet’s 7/2 favourites to land the 27-year-old during this transfer window. But whoever wants to bring Gayle on board will have to pay a pretty penny to nab him.
And there are more potential bumps in the road with the Star suggesting that Rafael Benitez will also only allow Gayle to quit the north east if a replacement can be found.
Newcastle United manager Rafa Benitez is seen during the Premier League match between Newcastle United and West Ham United at St. James Park on August 26, 2017 in Newcastle upon Tyne,...
Gayle notched 23 goals in the Championship last season, which was the second highest tally in the division as Newcastle surged to the league title.
Wolves are one of the few second-tier sides who would be able to meet Newcastle's lofty demands, having already spent big this summer to bring in Porto sensation Ruben Neves for £15m, according to a report by the BBC.
Gayle has fallen behind Aleksandar Mitrovic and newboy Joselu in the pecking order at St James’ Park following a hamstring injury and as a result Benitez appears happy to move him on.
Wolves are looking to add more firepower to their squad as they target a return to the Premier League and need to find a replacement for Nouha Dicko, who the Express and Star believe could be heading to Hull after having a bid accepted.
