Newcastle United should look at PSG winger Goncalo Guedes.
Rafael Benitez has voiced his frustration about transfer inactivity at Tyneside in recent months, but Newcastle could end the summer window on a high if they manage to sign Paris Saint Germain’s highly rated winger Goncalo Guedes.
French publication L’Equipe reported earlier this week that Guedes could be available for loan, with Spanish side Valencia showing early interest.
According to ESPN, Los Che are closing in on a deal for the highly rated winger. It’s high time Newcastle muscle in and secure his signature, albeit on a temporary move.
PSG are overflowing with attacking talents – Neymar, Lucas Moura, Edinson Cavani, Angel Di Maria, Julian Draxler, Hatem Ben Arfa, Javier Pastore and Giovani Lo Celso – and as such young Guedes would struggle to get regular games.
Guedes joined PSG for £27 million from Benfica and is a highly talented winger who is often compared to Cristiano Ronaldo in Portugal because of a similar playing style.
The 20-year-old is already a Portugal international and would add significant quality and depth to the Newcastle squad.
He has made only 13 appearances for PSG so far and needs to move away from the club to get regular game time, something he badly needs for his development.
For a player of his ability, it will represent an excellent signing for the Magpies, if they can secure a loan risk-free deal for the Portuguese.
