The Record in Portugal are reporting today that Newcastle are interested in signing GD Chaves midfielder Stephen Eustaquio.
The Portugal U21 player only joined Chaves this year from Leixoewhen when he signed in January on a five-and-a-half-year deal for his buyout clause in his contract of €500K.
He was born in Canada of Portuguese parents.
The fee is said to be around €7M which is £6.2M with today’s transfer rate.

He is a defensive midfielder but can also play in other midfield positions.
Eustaquio could be one that Steve Nickson – Head of Recruitment – and his team have identified as a very talented young player, who can do well on Tyneside under the tutelage of Rafa Benitez.
He has played 14 times this season with one goal for Chaves and has been capped 7 times for the Portugal U21 side.
