Premier League side Newcastle United are reportedly chasing Celtic fullback Emilio Izaguirre.
The Scottish Sun has reported that the Toon Army gaffer Alan Pardew is resigned to losing left-back Jose Enrique in the summer and has targeted the Celtic star as a replacement.
It is believed that Magpies scouts have raved about the 25 year old Honduras international after heading north to watch their on-loan keeper Fraser Forster.
Now Pardew, who has a huge transfer warchest after the £35million sale of Andy Carroll last January, is ready to move for the Honduras World Cup star.
It is said the Newcastle will start the bidding at £2.5m – but that is a figure sure to be kicked out by Hoops chiefs.
However it is said that the Geordies are ready to go toe to toe with Liverpool and others in an auction for the full-back who took the SPL by storm in his first season.
