Liverpool and Chelsea have been handed transfer boosts as they pursue Newcastle playmaker Bruno Guimaraes. The playmaker has been linked with a move away from the Magpies this summer, with Eddie Howe’s side eyeing replacements. Guimaraes has been a key part of Newcastle’s success, and his performances have earned him plenty of praise.
He is said to be available for around £100 million, a fee not out of reach for Chelsea and Liverpool. Both clubs have registered an interest in the former Lyon star, and they can take confidence from the news that Newcastle are already looking for midfield reinforcements. Newcastle are intent on acquiring Guimaraes for a fee in the region of £23 million.
Juventus is also among the suitors for Ederson, but Newcastle is hoping to convince him to choose Premier League football over Serie A. It remains to be seen whether Newcastle will still attempt to lure Ederson, and Sandro Tonali is set to return to first-team action over the summer following his ban. Sales in midfield are anticipated as the Magpies seek to improve their Financial Fair Play situation and raise funds.
