Heerenveen striker Alfred Finnbogason is emerging among the red-hot targets for the January market.

The Icelander is the top scorer in Europe and Heerenveen are prepared to sell - for the right price.

The Express & Star says Newcastle United and Aston Villa have been linked with a move for Finnbogason.

The forward has netted nine times in six appearances this season and was linked with Villa in the summer transfer window.
