NEWCASTLE have been dealt a transfer blow with Inter Milan pushing for star midfielder Marcelo Brozovic to agree to new terms.
The Magpies have been tracking the Croatian midfielder ever since their big money Saudi takeover.
And Brozovic could be snapped up from January 1 on a pre-contract.
Fellow Premier League clubs Manchester United and Chelsea have also previously held an interest.
But manager Simone Inzaghi remains hopeful the 28-year-old will stay in Milan.
He told La Gazzetta dello Sport: "Brozo has to hurry up and sign his renewal!
"He loves Inter and everything around this club, he’s an extraordinary player and for years Inter have been reliant on him.
“I hope that Perisic signs soon as well.
