Newcastle United, aiming to further bolster their attacking options, are targeting AIK Stockholm forward Teteh Bangura, according to the Mirror.

The 21-year-old scored seven goals in nine appearances for the Swedish side since his move in January.

And Newcastle boss Alan Pardew, whose links in Sweden has helped alert him to Bangura, is closing in on a forward compared to a young Didier Drogba.


The Sierra Leone international applied his trade in his homeland before moving to Cleveland City Stars and then on to Sweden with Koping.

Bangura would join new signing Demba Ba up front, while Newcastle are also chasing a deal for Turkish striker Mevlut Erdinc as the club attempt to bare the loss of Andy Carroll, who departed for Liverpool in the January transfer window.

Sylvain Marveaux and Yohan Cabaye have already joined Newcastle this summer, with Swansea City full-back Neil Taylor set to join.
