Newcastle United closing in on third January signing as Lyon accept £30m offer for midfielder Bruno Guimaraes

Newcastle United have agreed a fee for Lyon’s Brazilian midfielder Bruno Guimaraes.

The fee is understood to be in the region of £30million, according to Sky Sports’ Keith Downie.

The 24-year-old is currently away in Ecuador with Brazil’s national team and will undergo a Newcastle medical while on international duty.

Bruno joined Lyon in 2020 from Brazilian side Athletico Paranaense for €20million and has since made 71 appearances for the Ligue 1 club, scoring three goals.

He could become The Magpies’ third signing of the January transfer window following the £12million arrival of England international Kieran Trippier from Atletico Madrid and £25million capture of Chris Wood from Burnley.

Eddie Howe’s side remain in the market for a centre-back with Brighton & Hove Albion’s Dan Burn emerging as a fresh target after turning attentions away from the likes of Sven Botman and Diego Carlos.
