Burnley are pushing to bring in Craig Dawson and Jay Rodriguez, whilst there are now mounting concerns over the future of striker Salomon Rondon.
The Venezuelan international, 28, has hit 28 goals in 119 games for West Brom since his 2015 move from Zenit St Petersburg, including 10 goals this past season.
That would be a considerable outlay for Newcastle, but it's claimed that manager Rafael Benitez is a fan of Rondon and is ready to prise him away from The Hawthorns.
Benitez snapped up Islam Slimani on loan from Leicester City in January with no impact, and may now see Rondon as the physical striker he wants to lead the Newcastle attack.
West Brom wouldn't be able to stand in Rondon's way, and heading to Tyneside may be appealing to the burly striker, as he may be guaranteed playing time given Newcastlte's lack of attacking options.
