Lille striker Gervinho is planning to announce this week which club he will be joining this summer.
The Ivory Coast international is being tipped to leave France and a number of Premier League clubs are interested.
Newcastle are the latest name in the frame and The Magpies have been linked with a €11million (£9.5m) bid.
However, the likes of Arsenal and Liverpool are also said to be interested, so Newcastle will have a fight on their hands.
Gervinho has confirmed he loves the Premier League, but he is not ruling out possible moves to Spain or Germany.
"During the week I'll announce my decision so that everyone knows," he told skysports.com.
"I love the Premier League, but I have interest from Spain and Germany as well, so let's wait and see."
