Newcastle United, Aston Villa, Brighton and Hove Albion, Watford and Bournemouth are all in discussions over a move for Hertha Berlin striker Davie Selke.
That’s according to Bild, who report that the German striker is keen to move this month to avoid ending up sitting on the bench at the Bundesliga club.
That’s something he cannot afford as he has high hopes of participating in the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo and so he is now looking to move on to ensure that happens.
He wants to leave Berlin as ‘quickly as possible’ and is already negotiating with five Premier League clubs, Newcastle, Aston Villa, Brighton, Watford and Bournemouth.
Bild believes that despite both he and the club rejecting offers in the past, ‘this time a change should work’ and a decision could be made soon about his future.
Of the five English clubs, Aston Villa are likely to be pressing the most given they lost Wesley earlier this month, although the arrival of Mbwana Samatta may change that.
Newcastle are also in need of reinforcements with injuries decimating their squad, while competition for Joelinton, who has managed just one league goal this season, is needed.
Brighton, Watford and Bournemouth are in less need of attacking additions but the chance to add extra firepower to boost their hopes of escaping a relegation battle looks like one they don’t want to miss out on.
