Rafa Benitez to swoop for Richmond Boakye in January

Reports claim Newcastle United manager Rafa Benitez has penciled down Red Star Belgrade striker Richmond Boakye as a January transfer target.

The Magpies have become the latest English Premier League club to be linked with the Ghana international who is in nice form.

Boakye is reported to be on the radar of several clubs with an impressive scoring record of 14 goals in 13 league matches in the Serbian Liga.

He featured in both the Serbian side's Europa League clashes against Arsenal, as they successfully qualified for the knockout stage in second place behind the Gunners in Group H.

He spent two seasons at Juventus after starting his career at Serie A side Genoa - but made no first team appearances - and has also played on loan in Spain and Holland.
