Newcastle United are reported by Sky Sports, to be looking at highly-rated Greek international Vasilis Torosidis.
Vasilis Torosidis – one of the best young players in Greece
Newcastle United dispatched one of their ever growing number of scouts to watch Olympiakos in action last weekend and it is thought that Torosidis was their primary target.
But of course Newcastle scouts will be watching players every weekend, as they track down players who will be brought to the club in the summer, just as long as we can stay in the Premier league.
The 22-year-old is an attacking right-back and rated as one of the best young players in Greece, having played extremely well for Olympiakos this season and he already has 10 caps for Greece to his name.
Vasilis is a 6’2″ wingback known for his exceptional physical strength and endurance and he has been an important part of the Greek national team and the Olympiakos team since joining the club.
Here is Vasilis’ playing record so far:

There are a number of sides monitoring his progress and they include Juventus, AS Monaco, Glasgow Rangers and Athletico Madrid but so far Olympiakos is reluctant to part with such a good young player.
From his record he looks the part but we already have a well thought of 22 year old full back at the club in Jose Enrique. Vasilis however, operates on the right hand side as a full back or winger. We have no idea of his potential transfer fee.
