Feyenoord are demanding more money if they are to consider selling Nicolai Jorgensen but Newcastle are refusing to be held to ransom over the striker, Sky Sports News understands.
Rafa Benitez wants to add a striker to his squad in the January transfer window and the Denmark international is his top target.
Newcastle have made two offers for Jorgensen, the second of which was worth £15m, but both were rejected by Feyenoord.
While Newcastle are still keen on the 27-year-old, they have multiple targets and are working hard on ensuring they have a new striker in their squad before the transfer window closes on Wednesday night.
Jorgensen has scored 32 goals in all competitions for Feyenoord since joining in 2016, and also has eight goals in 28 games for Denmark.
Feyenoord confirmed the signing of Robin van Persie on Monday, who is making is return to De Kuip after leaving the club 14 years ago.
