Indeed, one of the surprise rumours yet, Premier League side Newcastle United, are set to step towards the potential signing of Goncalo Inacio from Sporting Lisbon.
The 22-year-old Portuguese defender has been making the rounds lately with top teams like Manchester United, Real Madrid, and Liverpool linked to him ahead of the January transfer window.
Newcastle United is one of the newest names to enter the list of suitors for the player, according to Fichajes.net.
Head coach of the Magpies, Eddie Howe, has set his sights on strengthening his squad, especially in the defence, which has been a source of concern for him.
So far, the club has recorded some success in the Premier League, finishing last season as one of the teams with the least goals conceded.
However, some reinforcement is needed to keep the team in good shape.
Newcastle United’s chase of Goncalo Inacio is not expected to be an easy ride due to the competition from other Premier League clubs, including Liverpool and Arsenal.
But Eddie Howe is determined that he could land his transfer targets, and the club could grant his wishes. Goncalo Inacio could cost Newcastle United around 60 million euros for a transfer to be agreed.
