The Ivory Coast international is one of the most effective defensive midfield players in the Premier League and could move for around £16m in the middle of the season, though Newcastle are understandably keen to keep him.
Arsenal have been linked with Tiote many times in the past, but Napoli boss Rafael Benitez is now stepping up his interest in the tough-tackling 28-year-old.
The Serie A side are expected to make an opening offer of around £12m, but will surely be required to cough up more for the Magpies battler.
