Newcastle United want St Etienne's £10m-rated striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, according to a report.

Newcastle United are reportedly chasing Saint-Etienne striker Pierre Aubameyang.

The Magpies are keen on Liverpool forward Andy Carroll, but feel that their offer of £10m will be turned down by the Reds, who are looking for substantially more to sell the player they paid £35m for in January 2011.

Should manager Alan Pardew fail to land the on-loan West Ham United striker, he will turn his attention to Aubameyang, according to The Mirror.

Newcastle's chief scout Graham Carr was sent to watch the 23-year-old in action recently.
