NEWCASTLE have reportedly received a £33.5million offer for Jack Harrison that was rejected by Leeds United.
And the Magpies will reportedly have to shell out at least £40million if they want to sign the winger.
Eddie Howe’s side have already made three new additions to their squad this summer.
They snapped up goalkeeper Nick Pope and defender Sven Botman, turning Matt Targett’s loan into a permanent transfer.
Now Newcastle are looking for attacking reinforcements and have been linked with the Leeds star for a few weeks.
Foot Mercato now announce they have made a formal approach to Harrison.
They claim Toon has bid £33.5million for the ex-Manchester City ace.
However, this offer was quickly rejected.
And Leeds are only willing to do business if they receive at least £40m.
Former England Under-21 international Harrison scored the decisive goal as Leeds scraped Premier League survival against Brentford last season.

He just signed for the Elland Road outfit from Man City for £10million last summer.
But his scintillating performances have seen the Englishman’s stock more than triple in the last 12 months.
Leeds’ refusal to do business will be a major blow to Toon boss Howe, who is desperate to add some firepower to his attack.
The abounding Saudi side struggled for goals last season and Howe is keen to avoid a repeat this time.
