Newcastle United are eyeing Reims striker Boulaye Dia.
The Evening Chronicle says Dia is on a long list of targets at United but the Reims star is leaping to the attention of scouts in the Premier League after a recent hat-trick against Montpellier and a brace in his last game before the international break against Lens.
The Oyonnax-born player can operate as centre-forward or on the right-wing and is part of the Senegal international set-up.
Dia has made 36 starts for Reims and scored 18 goals in Ligue 1 and two goals in the Europa League in six appearances since making his debut in 2018, the player is currently valued at £7million and his contract expires in 2022.
The Magpies aren't alone in taking a look at Dia with Marseille and Premier League side Brighton & Hove Albion interested in his services.
