Bruno Guimarães keen to join NUFC as club launch bid close to Lyon’s asking price – The Athletic

On Tuesday night, a flurry of reports from France claimed that Newcastle United had launched an ambitious bid to sign Lyon playmaker Bruno Guimarães.

With Toon fans naturally wanting reassurance from a source slightly closer to home, The Athletic have now weighed in on the story, revealing a few key details that appear to bode well for NUFC.

In a piece by David Ornstein and Chris Waugh, they report that we have identified the Brazilian as our top midfielder target.

Crucially, they also claim that the 24-year-old is ‘keen’ on a move to St James’ Park, stating that our offer is ‘close’ to Lyon’s asking price – meaning we are hopeful a deal can be agreed.

The Athletic insist that it is yet to be accepted as of Tuesday night, but the fact the Ligue 1 side are cash strapped could work in our favour.

What a signing this could be…
