With that in mind, Newcastle United are said to be ‘very interested’ after ‘trying their luck’ in the January window.

Raphinha has made 44 appearances this season for club and country, scoring eight goals in all competitions. The 26-year old was one of the hottest commodities in world football last summer with Arsenal and Liverpool heavily linked before his eventual move to the Nou Camp.

It is claimed the French side’s senior football advisor, Luis Campos, believes that Botman is destined to be one of the best defenders in Europe.

However, the Magpies are said to be ‘relaxed’ about the apparent interest in the defender as well as other rumours currently doing the rounds. The same report says that Real Madrid have midfielder Bruno Guimaraes on their radar and could make a move for the Brazilian international.
