Newcastle have agreed terms with Atlanta United over a club-record deal for Miguel Almiron, Sky Sports News understands.
It is understood the MLS midfielder is travelling to the UK on Tuesday night for a medical.
The transfer fee is understood to be around the £20m mark, which would surpass Newcastle's current transfer record of £16.5m paid for Michael Owen in 2005.
Atlanta valued Almiron at £30m at start of window, but have lowered their valuation since then, with Almiron still to agree personal terms.
Newcastle are in talks with Benfica over a loan move for midfielder Andreas Samaris, Sky Sports News understands.
They are also in negotiations with Monaco over a similar loan deal for Italian defender Antonio Barreca.
