Newcastle United are making a late move for Sporting Lisbon defender Goncalo Inacio, with reports suggesting that a €30million euro bid has already been rejected for the 20-year-old.
The news was broken exclusively by journalist Pedro Sepulveda, with the news a shock to the Newcastle fans as the report came from nowhere, no prior links or rumours, just a bid being rejected.
Will Newcastle sign a new centre back?
NUFC360 then relayed the news to supporters, with them flocking to the comments to swoon over the news and share their excitement.
What the Toon Army had to say
“I can’t keep up with all this, it’s mental.” @Malaga_Mag
“Yeah he looks more expensive than €30m.” @luke_curry
“This lad is the real deal. #NUFC.” @realCStebbings
“We want to spend more???” @yournufc
“We’re going to need to flex our financial muscle at this stage of the window. At the moment we do not have the quality to be genuinely hopeful about staying up. The next 3 days is make or break.” @albertfezziwig
“I think he’s worth up to £35m.” @curtis_moat
It’s clear to see they’re excited, despite the deal being reported to be off until the summer. It also shows just how busy they are behind the scenes at St James’ Park.
The fact this interest and bid just appeared with no prior reports sets up an exciting final few days of the transfer window for Newcastle fans.
We know they’re interested in Dan Burn and Marcao to strengthen at the back, but it shows anything is possible. Will Newcastle sign one of those players, or will another surprise come out of nowhere?!
