Luuk de Jong's agent has suggested that the striker would be interested in joining Newcastle United , if a fee can be agreed with FC Twente.
Sky revealed earlier this week that the Magpies had tabled an £8million bid for De Jong, who was part of the Netherlands' squad for Euro 2012.
The 21-year-old has been a long-term target for Newcastle boss Alan Pardew, and has been linked with the likes of Liverpool and Fiorentina in the past.
There remains fierce competition to sign the forward, with his agent Louis Laros claiming De Jong has already shunned advances from some clubs.
However, with reports claiming Twente want at least £12.5million for De Jong, his representative is now waiting for any suitors to meet the Dutch club's demands.

"I know that Newcastle are following him, that is no secret, but a club must first agree a fee with FC Twente and so far this has not happened. I really don't know what will happen next.
"It is not up to us at this moment, it is up to those clubs to show an interest and agree a financial deal with Twente.
"It has got to be the right club for Luuk, and a club that Luuk likes. He has already rejected several clubs who are interested because they are not the right move. I can confirm that Newcastle are not one of the clubs that he has rejected.
