The Daily Mirror claim the 25 year old may look to leave the Bundesliga side as they set their sights on Borussia Monchengladbach striker Max Kruse.

Newcastle United and Southampton head a list of four Premier League outfits tracking the massive 6ft 5in forward, who has netted 14 goals in just 14 domestic league starts this term and as such is surely a player Wolfsburg would look to keep.

This source values the former Heerenveen man at a very affordable £8m and both Newcastle United and Southampton could do with improving their front-lines.

The Magpies have struggled for goals since the turn of the year whilst Saints forward Graziano Pelle’s form has been up and down in his debut season at St Mary’s.

Swansea City and Stoke City are also said to be keen on Dost.
