Newcastle United interested in signing £6 million-rated striker

Championship side Newcastle United are keen on securing the services of Ipswich Town attacker David McGoldrick, according to reports from the Sun.

Newcastle United splashed a sizeable £10 million to secure the services of Dwight Gayle from Crystal Palace this summer and following the arrival of the 25-year-old, the Magpies arguably possess one of the most potent strike forces in the Championship which already consisted of the likes of Aleksandar Mitrovic, Ayoze Perez and Adam Armstrong.

Despite boasting such a quality attacking lineup at his disposal though, manager Rafael Benitez is said to be currently in the market to sign another striker and in surprise reports from the Sun, claims have been made that the Magpies are considering a swoop for David McGoldrick.

The Republic of Ireland international is currently plying his trade at Ipswich Town and he has been fairly successful in the Championship over the past few seasons with the Tractor Boys.

As a result, McGoldrick seems to have caught attention the of Newcastle and the Sun claim that the Magpies have already initiated contacts with Ipswich over the prospective signing of the 28-year-old.

The report adds that Ipswich are demanding around £6 million for McGoldrick and that Newcastle are not ready to pay such an amount due to his injury record in recent times.
