Eddie Howe’s men have been nothing short of breathtaking at times so far this season and reports are suggesting they want to keep on building to make the most of their impressive performances.
Spanish newspaper outlet Sport has reported that Newcastle are interested in signing Depay from Barcelona.
The outlet suggested that Howe and the team at St James’ Park were interested in signing the Dutchman in the summer, but were unable to do so.
The Catalan giants are reportedly hoping to move Depay on during the winter window for a fee to avoid losing him for free when his contract expires in the summer.

Reports elsewhere are suggesting that due to his contract’s fast approaching expiration, the former Lyon man could be available at a cut-price.
Sports Witness have reported that Depay could be available for just £9million, a fee which would make his arrival all the more enticing to Newcastle.
The 28-year-old hasn’t set the world alight since his move to Camp Nou, scoring 14 goals in 41 appearances.
Newcastle already have an array of attacking talent including record transfer Alexander Isak who made the move to Tyneside in the summer for £58million.
