The 6ft 2in forward scored 12 goals for Chievo, who play in Verona. in Serie A last season as the small town club surprised everyone by battling for honours rather than against a quick return to Serie B.

Newcastle have apparently sent scouts over to watch Corradi, who is attracting interest from across Europe as well as leading Serie A clubs.

A figure of around £3million would be needed to prise him away from his homeland.
