Newcastle have reportedly had their bid for Sporting Lisbon winger Andre Carrillo rejected.
According to Portuguese newspaper A Bola, Newcastle have had their bid for Sporting Lisbon winger Andre Carrillo rejected.
Reports from A Bola on Saturday suggested that Newcastle were interested in signing Peruvian international winger Carrillo, with a €10m bid reportedly made.
However, A Bola now report that Newcastle's bid has been rejected by the Portuguese club, and they want a whopping €30m (£26m) in order to part with Carrillo.
That figure hasn't just been plucked from the sky by Sporting though, as it is reportedly the release clause figure in Carrillo's contract.
The 23-year-old, formerly of Allianza Lima, has hit six goals and 11 assists this season, and is known to be a pacey winger who can cause problems in the final third.
Despite that, it would be a huge shock to see Newcastle fork out anywhere near €30m for Carrillo, especially with no manager currently in place.
