St James’ Park side chase Borussia Monchengladbach forward.
Newcastle United are reportedly preparing a January bid for Borussia Monchengladbach striker Max Kruse according to the Daily Mirror.
A run of five straight Premier League wins has turned the Magpies season on it’s head and has perhaps helped Alan Pardew to secure extra transfer funds.
The St James’ Park boss will look to complete a £9m move for the 26 year old German international as he looks to strengthen his attacking options.
Kruse narrowly missed out on a spot in Joachim Low’s 2014 World Cup squad but has been involved in recent national team encounters.
The former Freiburg man bagged a dozen Bundesliga goals last term and finished the campaign as one of the leading assist makers to boot and has shown similarly good form this season and given his side sits in third spot he may not be keen on a January exit and Newcastle United may have a fight on their hands to tempt Borussia Monchengladbach into selling.
