According to reports, Liverpool is prepared to make an enticing offer of €100 million to secure the signature of Bruno Guimaraes, who is also being pursued by Real Madrid and Chelsea.
The Brazilian midfielder made his way to Newcastle United last summer from Lyon, and has had an impressive debut season in England, notching up four goals and five assists in 35 games across various competitions.
Guimaraes, who primarily operates as a No. 6, is known for his excellent dribbling and passing skills, as well as his prowess in defense. His stellar performances for Newcastle United have earned him interest from top clubs like Real Madrid and Fc Chelsea.
Reportedly, Liverpool is considering making a significant offer for Guimaraes, with the possibility of a nine-figure bid being prepared by Jurgen Klopp, according to El Nacional.
Liverpool is currently in need of rejuvenating their midfield, which has been hampered by aging and injury-prone players. The recent performances of Jordan Henderson and Fabinho have been below par, and they could benefit from competition for a starting spot.
In addition, Thiago Alcantara has been ruled out for the remainder of the season due to a hip problem, while James Milner, Naby Keita, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s contracts expire this summer. Guimaraes, on the other hand, still has three years remaining on his contract at the end of this season.
This summer, the Brazilian midfielder will likely have two options: he can either join a bigger club than Newcastle United or remain at St. James’ Park to be a part of Eddie Howe’s new era.
With 33 games played, Newcastle United finds themselves in third place in the table, with a nine-point lead over Liverpool, who are currently in fifth place. This puts Newcastle United in a favorable position to secure a spot in the UEFA Champions League next season.
