dost wolf psThe Dutchman is set to leave Wolfsburg this summer with the German club signing Mario Gomez and England seems the most likely destination for the 27-year-old.

Newcastle United are in talks with Dost according to local newspaper The Evening Chronicle, but face competition from fellow English Championship side Aston Villa and current Premier League champions Leicester City, among others.

Rafael Benitez is on the lookout for a new centre forward and was linked with Utrecht’s Sebastien Haller, but now seems to have turned his attention to Dost and is hoping to wrap up a deal quickly.
