Newcastle United linked with another Brazilian wonderkid as Everton and Arsenal eye £30m target
A fresh name has been linked with a move to Newcastle United.
Newcastle United linked with another Brazilian youngster
Palmeiras forward Endrick is the latest Brazilian teenager to be linked with a move to Newcastle United.
The Magpies have made a conscious effort to pursue young Brazilian talent following the successful signing of Bruno Guimaraes and transformation of Joelinton on Tyneside.
According to sources in Brazil, Newcastle are one of several clubs interested in the 16-year-old, who is yet to make his senior debut for Palmeiras.
Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain are also understood to be interested, according to Brazilian journalist Jorge Nicola.
Although he is yet to make his professional debut, Endrick has an eye-watering €40million (£35.36million) release clause at Palmeiras.
Along with the 16-year-old forward, Newcastle have also been linked with 18-year-old Vasco da Gama midfielder Andrey Santos. Santos forward Angelo Gabriel, 17, was also monitored by United’s head of recruitment Steve Nickson over the summer.
Newcastle United face stiff competition from Arsenal for £30m winger
Newcastle United are monitoring Shakhtar Donetsk winger Mykhaylo Mudryk along with several other Premier League clubs.
Scouts from Newcastle, Arsenal and Everton watched Mudryk in action for Ukraine in a 3-0 defeat at Scotland earlier this week. The match saw Newcastle winger Ryan Fraser come off the bench to grab two assists in the match.
Eddie Howe is keen to strengthen his options out wide with Mudryk emerging as a potential January transfer target – the 21-year-old is valued at around £30million.
Newcastle also remain interested in Leeds United's Jack Harrison, Leicester City’s James Maddison and Joao Pedro of Watford – speaking of which.
Newcastle United target agrees new long-term deal
Newcastle United transfer target Joao Pedro has agreed a new six-year deal at Watford until 2028.
The 20-year-old forward emerged as a top target for Newcastle in the summer transfer window.
The Magpies made a £25million plus £5million in add-ons bid for the young Brazilian but changed their plans when Real Sociedad striker Alexander Isak became available as they turned their attention to a club record £60million move.
But interest remains in Joao Pedro, who has made a strong start to the season back in the Championship with Watford, and a January bid isn’t off the table.
