PSV’s Gaston Pereiro is not enjoying what is likely his final season with the Eredivisie club. The 24-year-old has seen his game time limited partly due to a broken collarbone but also because he has refused to extend his contract, which expires in the summer.
With Pereiro’s contract running down, he could be a decent option for Newcastle to make a move for in the January window. He would likely cost less than £10m.
Pereiro was reportedly offered to AC Milan this summer for £13m; however, the Serie A club opted against signing the Uruguayan international.
PSV would like to offload the playmaker before losing him on a free in the summer. Pereiro has played just 3 times this season, but before his contract situation, he was a star player for the Dutch club.
Gaston Pereiro– running contract down at PSV
The 6’2″ attacker joined PSV from Uruguayan club Nacional for just over £6.5m in the summer of 2015. Since then, he has made 116 appearances with 43 goals and 17 assists. He generally plays as an attacking midfielder but can also operate on either wing.
He has 10 caps for Uruguay with 4 goals. He was recently called up for Uruguay’s friendly against Argentina this past week but was an unused substitute.
With Newcastle lacking creative options in central midfield, Pereiro could be a cheap option as a playmaker who can also get forward and score some goals. It’s the type of player this squad does not really possess at the moment.
