This is a monumental signing for Newcastle to land a player of this stature in the January window. Lyon have been quite reasonable compared to some of the other clubs Newcastle have worked with this window.
Once completed, Guimaraes will be Eddie Howe’s third signing of the window. He will instantly upgrade Howe’s options in the midfield. Newcastle are also working on bringing Mitchel Bakker in from Leverkusen, at least once center-back, and possibly another attacker.
Atalanta left-back Robin Gosens completed his move to Inter Milan earlier today. It appears that Juventus have won the race to sign Fiorentina’s Dusan Vlahovic for a fee that could reach £69m with add-ons.
