Newcastle in talks for strikers Muto and Rondon

Newcastle United are closing on a deal for Mainz striker Yoshinori Muto.

The Daily Mail says talks are advancing for the 26-year-old, who impressed during the World Cup, and Newcastle hope to reach an agreement with his club Mainz.

Rafa Benitez has been pushing for reinforcements and believes progress is also being made on a potential loan swap deal involving West Brom's Salomon Rondon and Dwight Gayle.

Albion are extending Rondon's contract by a year to protect their asset and a permanent option will be discussed at the end of the season.
