Newcastle were interested in 25 year-old Dutch striker Bass Dost, while he was still playing his football at Heerenveen in Holland over two years ago, and at that time there were reports Newcastle were interested in signing the 6’4″ striker.
Bass Dost – 25 year-old Dutch striker
But then he moved to Wolfsburg in June of 2012, but now with the German club having just signed former Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner, it may be that Wolfsburg will allow Dost to leave, and Newcastle could well be interested.
And there’s a report in the Sunday People that Newcastle are waiting to see if Wolfsburg are willing to let Dost leave the German club
While at Heerenveen for two seasons from 2010, Dost scored 52 goals in just 73 total appearances, and he also had 10 assists – so that’s a very decent record.
Dost has been less successful in Germany over the last two years, and he has made 48 appearances for Wolfsburg with 17 goals and 4 assists.
It does seem that if an appropriate striker does become available, then Newcastle could well make a move for the player, and it wouldn’t be surprising if Newcastle go after the Dutch International if Wolfsburg are willing to sell him.
The price tag is quoted at £8M, but that seems high, and Newcastle could probably get Dost to Tyneside for a figure less than that.
