Newcastle United have been linked with a move for sports midfielder Matheus Nunes through Record (translated by Sportwitness).
The 22-year-old is very talented and he was heavily linked with a move to Newcastle in January as well.
Apparently the Magpies submitted an offer for the player in January, but it was turned down. The offer was estimated at around 10 million euros.
The Brazilian has struggled to keep a regular starting spot at the Portuguese club and it will be interesting to see if Sporting are ready to take advantage of him this summer.
Apparently Newcastle are monitoring the midfielder’s situation and it remains to be seen if they are ready to resuscitate their interest in Nunes.
The 22-year-old midfielder has three goals and two assists to his name this season and he can play as a central midfielder as well as a defensive midfielder.
The Brazilian midfielder is excellent with the ball at his feet and his dribbling ability also allows him to operate in an advanced role.
His versatility could be ideal for Steve Bruce and Newcastle next season.
The Magpies certainly need more depth in their midfield and signing a permanent deal with Nunes and Joe Willock should be a priority for them this summer.
As for Nunes, he needs to play regularly at this point in his career and if Newcastle can give him the assurance of playing time, he might be tempted to move on.
