Newcastle should target Stefano Okaka in January

Newcastle United should consider a move for Watford striker Stefano Okaka in the January transfer window.

According to the Mirror, European clubs Monaco and Besiktas are both interested in a deal for the 29-year-old in the New Year.

The Italian centre-forward has made just two first-team appearances for the Hornets this season and his days appear numbered with them.

He’s scored five goals in 38 appearances since he joined in 2016 and has struggled to nail his spot in the team.

Okaka is a powerhouse striker that could certainly add something extra to the Newcastle attack, which is what they need in the second half of the season to avoid a relegation battle.

The £35,000-a-week ace (Spotrac) has shown glimpses in English football of his pace and power and a move to a Premier League rival cold get the best out of him.

He previously scored 17 goals in 49 games for Belgian side Anderlecht and shown his pedigree by playing for Italian outfit Roma.

Newcastle need some extra firepower going forward and Okaka could be an interesting left-field option in January.
