Newcastle United are likely to be offered the chance to sign PSV Eindhoven contract rebel Ola Toivonen.
Sources in Holland say Toivonen’s representatives have a plan of action in place should he not agree a new deal with PSV – and Newcastle are on a list of possible suitors.
The Swede shares the same representative as Vurnon Anita, super agent Mino Raiola, who also boasts Zlatan Ibrahimovic on his list of clients, and the Monaco-based Italian could turn to the Premier League in January if Toivonen cannot agree a new deal with PSV.
Who knows, Anita could be the man to give him advice on a move to Tyneside.
Whether Newcastle are prepared to cough up his wages is also up for debate.
The 27-year-old attacking midfielder will be available for a knockdown fee in January, and with Alan Pardew admitting in the summer he was eager to add another “offensive” player, a new striker could be at the top of Newcastle’s new year shopping list.
