The publication further claimed Newcastle's new-found financial muscle now mean they have the capacity to afford any player and will show ambition to bring in new players.
The Magpies are believed to have set their sights on raiding Man United for a number of players who have fallen out of favour at Old Trafford.
Anthony Martial is said to be the biggest name on Newcastle's shortlist, with the Frenchman currently finding game time hard to come by after the recent arrivals of Jadon Sancho and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Mirror claims Donny van de Beek, Jesse Lingard and Eric Bailly are the other players the St. James Park-outfit are interested in.
Lingard, much like Martial has fallen down the pecking order, with Van de Beek failing to earn Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's faith.
Bailly, meanwhile, has been pushed out of the first XI despite penning a new deal last summer, with the arrival of Raphael Varane seeing him dropped from the team.
Lampard backed for Newcastle job
Earlier, our trusted Kenyan source TUKO.co.ke reported Frank Lampard has emerged as the leading contender to succeed Steve Bruce as Newcastle United manager.
Bruce, who is yet to secure a single win in the league this season has come under immense pressure in recent days, with the recent take over of Newcastle by a Saudi-backed consortium further complicating his future at the club.
Lampard is currently out of work after he was sacked from Stamford Bridge back in January 2021.
