NEWCASTLE are stepping up their search for a new manager with Steve Bruce reportedly on borrowed time.
The new Saudi owners are reported to have identified former Arsenal boss Unai Emery as their top target, while one-time Celtic target Eddie Howe is also a target.
Other options include Belgium boss Roberto Martinez and Rangers’ Steven Gerrard.
Elsewhere, Chelsea reportedly rejected the chance to sign Gianluigi Donnarumma on a free transfer over the summer as they opted to keep the faith in Edouard Mendy.
And the West London club are open to selling Ross Barkley if the right offer comes along.
