Rafa Benitez looking to bring La Liga midfielder to NUFC this summer

After making moves to sign him in January, Newcastle are set to reignite their interest in Gabriel Pires following the midfielders impressive displays in Spain.

Rafa Benitez is looking to build a squad capable of competing in the Premier League next season and according to Spanish source MARCA, the La Liga midfielder is one of his summer targets.

The 23-year-old central-midfielder is said to have been Leganes’ stand out players this season, scoring 5 goals and recently starring in an impressive 4-0 win for his side, capped off with this stunning long range strike:

Newcastle were keen on signing Gabriel in January, with reports at the time suggesting Benitez was looking at a 6-month loan deal with an option to buy.

Despite being tipped for the top as a Juventus youngster, the midfielder is not one many will be familiar with. After an impressive season in La Liga, however, Gabriel may just represent the sort of hidden gem Benitez will look to unearth this summer.

One thought on “Rafa Benitez looking to bring La Liga midfielder to NUFC this summer

  1. In my opinion these players are the only ones that need to stay at NUFC next season

    1. Karl Darlow
    2. Rob Elliot
    3. Chancel Mbemba
    4. Ciaran Clark
    5. Paul Dummet
    6. Isaac Hayden
    7. Matt Rithcie
    8. Vurnon Anita
    9. Ayoze Perez
    10. Daryl Murphy

    Mo Diame is worst that Sisoko , Shelvy got anger management issue on the field and so does Mitrovic . Dwight Gayle a good player but too many injuires

    Players in should be Sigurnsson , Montero ( injury a concerns ) and Llorente – Swansea , Dier and Gray – Leicester , Negredo – Boro 🙄
