Newcastle United are interested in Benfica midfielder Filip Djuricic.

The Mirror says Djuricic, 22, is under contract until 2018 but Newcastle hope they can lure him to England for around £7m.

Newcastle have found themselves lacking a creative presence in midfield since the departure of Yohan Cabaye to Paris Saint-Germain in January.
