Newcastle eyeing double raid for Hellas Verona pair Simeone and Barak

Newcastle United are eyeing a double raid on Hellas Verona in January.

L'Arena reports Hellas Verona pair Giovanni Simeone and Antonin Barak are both on Newcastle's shopping list.

The Serie A outfit would be willing to part with the striker and midfielder for a combined fee in the region of £33m.

Simeone, the son of Atletico Madrid boss Diego, is second in the domestic scoring charts only to Ciro Immobile with nine strikes in 11 appearances.

The 26-year-old is currently on loan from Cagliari, and Hellas Verona reportedly hold a £10m option to make the deal permanent. The report claims the club would be keen to trigger this deal to bank a quick profit.

Meanwhile, Czech Republic international Barak has chipped in with four Serie A goals so far from midfield.
