Genoa forward Krzysztof Piatek is being closely monitored by Newcastle United ahead of the January window, according to a report.
The 23-year-old has only spent the last five months with the Italian side, having joined from KS Cracovia in a £3m deal.
Piatek has performed well during the early stages of his first spell outside of his native Poland, netting nine times in 12 Serie A outings.
United could now make a move for the Poland international, as the Newcastle Chronicle suggests that scouts have been sent to watch him up close half-a-dozen times already this term.
Also capable of playing out wide, Piatek is believed to be valued at £14m by Genoa.
