According to Portuguese outlet O Jogo, the Magpies are weighing up a potential move for the 21-year-old ahead of the summer transfer window.
Would Tavares be a good signing for NUFC?
Burnley have also been linked with a potential summer swoop for the youngster, who is currently valued at £6.3m.
Tavares has played only 11 games for the Portuguese side this season having made it into the senior team from their academy development in 2019 (via Transfermarkt).
Newcastle fans flocked to the tweet from NUFC360 relaying the claim their club is weighing up a move for the full-back and it appeared they were impressed to see their club linked with the Portuguese star.
It is clear from the reaction of these Newcastle fans that they are delighted at being linked with the youngster, however, they are also cautious about getting their hopes up over a potential summer move.
