Newcastle United are moving for PSV Eindhoven striker Ola Toivonen.

The Daily Mail says Toivonen is rated at around £8m but English clubs are reluctant to pay more than £5m for a player who failed to live up to expectation at the European Championships with Sweden.

Toivonen is represented by former Sweden striker Martin Dahlin who has good connections in England. He was ready to take the player to Liverpool while Roy Hodgson was there and Sunderland and Tottenham have also shown interest.
