Newcastle United reportedly want to snap up the Sporting Lisbon attacking midfielder.
Newcastle are said to be interested in the Sporting Lisbon playmaker, who has been linked with a whole host of Premier League teams recently.
The likes of Liverpool and Tottenham have been said to be interested in Fernandes, after his stellar performances in the Portuguese league last season.
Fernandes scored 16 goals and claimed 20 assists for Sporting last term, making him one of the most creative midfielders in Europe.
And if Newcastle could bring him to St. James’ Park, then he would be a treat for the Magpies crowd to watch.
Fernandes has skill, flair and a killer pass, and it has been a long time since Newcastle have had such quality in their team.
Fernandes is regarded as one of the top youngsters in European football, and if the 23-year-old does arrive at Newcastle, he could be the highest quality player they have bought to Tyneside in recent memory.
