Newcastle will make a sensational bid to sign Germany international Robin Gosens from Atalanta this month, with Eddie Howe rubber-stamping plans to test the Serie A club's resolve before the January window closes. 

That is according to reports from Sky Italia, who understand Newcastle want to add the pacy left-back to their squad as soon as possible. The move would be seen as a stunning coup for the Magpies, who are flush with cash following their recent takeover, but still languish in the Premier League relegation zone.
