NUFC preparing deadline day move to sign Portuguese forward – Report

According to an exclusive from TEAMtalk, Newcastle are now interested in a deal to sign Wolves winger Ivan Cavaleiro.

The former Monaco and Benfica attacker – who’s appeared twice for Portugal – bagged an impressive 9 goals and 13 assists for Wolves last season, however his future is now said to be ‘uncertain’ after completing an £18m deal for Adama Traore today.

TEAMtalk now claim Rafa Benitez would ‘love’ to bring the 24-year old to St James’ Park, also stating that Danny Ings is also being targeted ahead of tomorrow’s 5pm deadline.

Here’s a snippet from their transfer ‘exclusive’ in the last few moments:

‘Newcastle are hoping to bolster their attacking options further before the transfer window shuts with both Danny Ings and Ivan Cavaleiro in their sights, TEAMtalk has been told.

‘Newcastle, who asked Arsenal if they can take Danny Welbeck earlier this summer, are also now in for Portuguese international winger Ivan Cavaleiro.

‘The 24-year-old has already snubbed interest from Huddersfield this summer, whilst Fulham are also keen.

‘Now after Wolves snapped up Adama Traore from Middlesbrough, his future looks increasingly uncertain and Rafa Benitez would love to take him to  St James’ Park.

‘Newcastle are willing to offer Wolves cash, which they may be tempted by as they look to make further signings themselves before Thursday’s deadline.

This is one completely out of the blue and one that’s best taken with a pinch of salt – especially when it seems like deals for a left-back and a centre-back are the top priority.



Not only that, TEAMtalk are hardly the most reputable of sources..

Perhaps one to watch, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see Lee Ryder denying this one on Twitter in the next hour or two!

    Trust me. Ivan’s going nowhere. Traore was bought as back up to him, not the other way round. He fine staying where he is, at a big club.👿

    Fair enough mate – you may be right. We’re just sharing what’s out there.

    Wouldn’t say you’re a ‘big club’ yet though – even if you are heading that way based on your spending..
