The Mirror are reporting today that Newcastle are interested in signing Olympiakos left-back Leonardo Koutris.
The 23-year-old was born in Brazil and has been playing in Greece since he signed a three-year contract with Greek Super League club PAS Giannina in January 2016.
In April of 2017, the talented left-sided defender had been outstanding and signed a contract with champions Olympiacos.
Koutris holds both Greek as well as Brazilian citizenship being born of a Greek father and a Brazilian mother.
The Mirror report there are several clubs watching the 23-year-old who can play left-back and left wing-back and Rafa needs a left wing back brought in this summer.

Koutris has played 22 times for Olympiacos in all competitions and has 54 total appearances for the Greek powerhouse with one goal and 8 assists.
Rafa also needs to bring in a left-back to challenge Paul Dummett for that position with Paul becoming a stalwart under Rafa Benitez for the last three years.
It looks like loanee Antonio Barreca from Monaco is not that player and he has appeared only for a few minutes this year.
Everton are the Premier League club who have become interested in the talented Greek International.
