Newcastle United are said to be interested in signing up 17 year-old top Brazilian youngster Abner, who is currently at the Coritiba club in Brazil.
Abner – Brazilian 17 year-old left back
The youngster plays at left back, and he was one of the stars at this year’s World U17 Championships, and is starting to attract interest from some top European clubs.
The report is in talkSPORT, and it’s not often these days that Newcastle sign a South American youngster, or even linked with them, but certainly this lad has been a star of the Brazilian U17 side this year.
It’s debatable what his value is, and it could be anywhere form £500K to £1.5M, and at least tow other clubs, Roma and Benfica, are also said to be interested in the 5’8″ tall left-footed defender.
Abner was born in Londrina and doesn’t turn 18 until next May.
