Newcastle United will learn the fate of their bids of Gervinho and Kevin Gameiro next week, according to both players.
The Northern Echo report that Tottenham Hotspur target Gameiro will tell the Magpies if they have been successful in their bid to lure him to the north-east within the next one or two weeks.
Meanwhile, Gervinho, who like Gameiro would prefer a move to a side playing Champions League football, will make a decision to join Newcastle, or either of his other potential suitors Arsenal and Liverpool, next week.
Gervinho said: "During the week I'll announce my decision so that everyone knows.
“I love the Premier League, but I have interest from Spain and Germany as well, so let's wait and see.”
Gamerio said:"I will decide on my future in one or two weeks."
"I already have an idea. I very much like Spain, but other clubs are following me.
"It is up to me to make a good choice, I will not go to a team where I'll be on the bench all year. I want to play and it will be up to me to seize my chance."
With £35 million to spend, Newcastle boss Alan Pardew has had most of the season to deliberate over his potential transfer targets, with Yohan Cabaye on the brink of making a move to the club.
But it is a forward Newcastle most crave, after the sale of Andy Carroll to Liverpool during the January transfer window, which was the catalyst for goal drought for Pardew's side.
