dost wolfsThe 26-year-old took the Bundesliga by storm this season, netting 16 goals in 21 matches, whilst also scoring in Wolfsburg’s DFB Pokal final win over Borussia Dortmund. Dost has a contract at Wolfsburg until 2017, but is being linked with a move away from the¬†Volkswagen Arena.

A number of Premier League clubs are hoping to snatch the Dutch international this summer, but according to AD, Newcastle United are the most concrete and have already held talks with the striker.

The Premier League club, who appointed former Twente boss Steve McClaren as their new coach on Wednesday, are searching for a new striker this summer and see Dost as the perfect number nine. Any deal would likely climb above the £10 million mark.
