RB Leipzig striker Yussuf Poulsen on Newcastle radar

RB Leipzig striker Yussuf Poulsen is on Newcastle United's radar.

The Evening Chronicle says Newcastle have made the 25-year-old Dane their top transfer target for this summer's market.

This season, Poulsen has scored three goals and produced five assists in 20 matches in the Bundesliga.

The Denmark international has spent the last six years playing in the Bundesliga and last season registered his best return of 19 goals in all competitions.

Poulsen, 25, has emerged from the shadow of Timo Werner and has earned a reputation in Germany as a 6ft 4in battering ram.
