Newcastle United manager Kevin Keegan has hinted at an interest in signing Arsenal defender Philippe Senderos.
Senderos was linked with a transfer to St James' Park earlier this summer, but Gunners boss Arsene Wenger rejected the reports.
The Switzerland international could find his first-team opportunities at Arsenal restricted this term after the club landed 31-year-old Mikael Silvestre from Manchester United on Wednesday.
Reports emerged on Friday claiming AC Milan could move for Senderos; however the Italian giants have failed to confirm or deny the speculation.
Keegan, though, has intimated that he could strengthen his defensive ranks with the addition of the 23-year-old after the player's father claimed both Milan and the Magpies were keen to secure his services.
"Well, the lad has got two tremendous clubs to pick from if his dad's right," Keegan said on Sky Sports News.
"Yes, [we are looking for that sort of player in that position].
"We are looking for three more players to come in before the deadline, but they have got to be the right players.
"We definitely need another defender; there is no doubt about that.
"We are looking for a defender, a midfield player and possible one more forward."
