Every day in January we'll be giving you the lowdown on a new Prem transfer target!

NAME: Wilfried Bony

CLUB: Vitesse POSITION: Striker AGE: 24

VALUE: £12 million

WANTED BY: Newcastle

THE STORY

Newcastle have been the busiest club in the Prem when it comes to signings this January - but they still might not be done just yet!

Wilfried Bony (who wears 'Wilfried' on his shirt) has been the star of the season in Holland, scoring goal after goal - including winning strikes against big boys Ajax, PSV and Feyenoord - to fire Vitesse into a shock title challenge!

He scored nine goals in six games back in Autumn - West Ham, Liverpool and Chelsea are all eyeing in a summer move, but the Magpies have leapt to the front after putting in a £12m bid to get him before Thursday's deadline!

PLAYER FACTS

- He's the top scorer in Holland right now, with 16 goals from 18 games!

- He's currently in action at the Africa Cup of Nations, as Drogba's back-up!

- He had a trial at Liverpool in 2007 - but failed to make the cut!

EDEN HAZARD! PFA Player of the Year and two wins away from his first Prem title!

DANIEL STURRIDGE! Injured again and could miss the rest of the season!
