NEWCASTLE have reportedly identified four possible goalkeeper targets which includes Manchester United's Dean Henderson and Chelsea's Kepa Arrizabalaga.
Magpies boss Eddie Howe is keen to bring in a new shot-stopper in the summer to battle Martin Dubravka for the No1 jersey.
And according to the Daily Mail, work is already underway at St James' Park on securing reinforcements in the upcoming transfer window.
They state that Henderson and Kepa are being eyed up, with both players out of favour at their current clubs.
Red Devils academy graduate Henderson hasn't featured in the Premier League all season with David De Gea preferred instead.
Meanwhile Kepa is the No2 at Chelsea behind Edouard Mendy, with the Spaniard limited to just four top-flight appearances this term.

The Mail also add that Arsenal's Bernd Leno remains a target after Newcastle failed to sign him in January.
Leno, who started in Saturday's 1-0 win against Aston Villa in the absence of Aaron Ramsdale, is expected to depart the Emirates in the near future.
West Brom star Sam Johnstone is claimed to be the final goalkeeper on Newcastle's wishlist as he approaches the end of his contract.
