The arrival of new owners at St James' Park has raised expectations this season, although the club remain rooted to the foot of the Premier League table without a win after 14 games.
Manager Eddie Howe is now looking to bolster his side for the second-half of the campaign, especially in the attack as they remain winless.
Foot Mercato have reported that PSG striker Mauro Icardi has been offered to the Premier League after struggling for regular game time in the French capital this season.
The Argentine striker has started five games in Ligue 1 this season following the arrival of countryman Lionel Messi, who has struggled at times since arriving from Barcelona.
The reports adds that the 28-year-old would prefer to go to a club where he would be more important as Juventus and Tottenham Hotspur have also been alerted to the situation.
