Newcastle United are reportedly weighing up a move for Sampdoria striker Stefano Okaka.
Okaka joined Sampdoria from Parma in the summer of 2014 and scored four league goals for the Blucerchiati last season.
The 25-year-old has reportedly attracted the interest of Premier League sides Southampton and Stoke City this summer.
It has also been reported that the Italy international has turned down a switch to newly-promoted Watford.
According to Gazzetta TV, Newcastle have been scouting Okaka and have opened talks with Sampdoria.
Okaka has won one cap for Italy.
