St Etienne striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is keen on a move to Newcastle United.

The Evening Chronicle says the Gabon international - who scored at St James' Park in the Olympics against Switzerland - is keen on the move, if St Etienne decide to give the green light.

The 6ft 1in striker - who United have looked at closely in the last year - is in line to be United's Plan B this winter should they fail to sign Marseille's Loic Remy.
