The Magpies will reportedly sack Steve Bruce as their head coach this week, after the club was taken over by Saudis last week.

Names like Lucien Favre, Graham Potter and Brendan Rodgers have been linked with the job.

Former Chelsea and Inter Milan boss Conte is the standout available candidate.

The Italian has rejected several clubs since he left the San Siro at the end of last season including Tottenham Hotspur.

Conte is believed to be reluctant to join a club that will take several years of rebuilding, but Ferdinand claims “money talks” and has encouraged Newcastle to go after Conte.

When asked who he would appoint, Ferdinand said on his Vibe with FIVE YouTube show: “It’s difficult. Of people that are available at the moment, Conte’s got to be up there on your list.

“Sometimes it’s about the money. The money talks nowadays as well.’

He added: “I think Conte. He’s the one that’s available. Can you get him? Push your luck.”
