Eddie Howe’s Magpies have already missed out on some transfer targets this summer, including former Reims striker Hugo Ekitike, who recently joined PSG.

However, one player they will desperate not miss out on is Brentford forward Ivan Toney. The Toon do face competition in the form of Jesse Marsch’s Leeds United.
