Twocolumns and really centered images with text-wrap

Hey,
for a newspaper (also using newspaper package) I would like to center an image in the top or bottom of the page. It should be centered in a way that it overlaps with both columns and the text should wrap around it.

You can see something similar here:
https://creativepro.com/the-dual-text-wrap-dilemma/
but for my purpose it doesn't have to wrap perfectly around the image but wrapping around a rectangle and the image is placed within that rectangle would be enough.

I can't really give you a great minimal working example, since I don't really know where to start, but I can give you a starting point (showing some possibilities when working with images and multicols):
\documentclass[a4paper]{article}\usepackage{multicol}\usepackage[demo]{graphicx}\usepackage{kantlipsum}\newenvironment{Figure} {\par\medskip\noindent\minipage{\linewidth}} {\endminipage\par\medskip}\begin{document}\begin{multicols}{2}\kant[1]\begin{Figure} \centering \includegraphics[width=\linewidth]{foo}\end{Figure}\kant[2-3]\begin{figure*} \centering \includegraphics[width=\linewidth]{foo}\end{figure*}\kant[4-5]\end{multicols}\end{document}

(I apologize for the ugly drawing)
