Having been promised with every single penny the club makes for summer acquisitions by owner Mike Ashley, Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez seems already set on strengthening the squad ahead of the Premier League.
Reports have been doing rounds on media outlets concerning a possible Newcastle move for Gabriel Pires.
The Brazilian midfielder who plays for Spanish outfit Leganes is said to have a £6 million buy-out clause in his contract which has made him an attractive proposition for various Premier league clubs.
Benitez is said to be a keen admirer of the midfielder who has played 35 times in La Liga this season and with the latest activity from the player himself, a move to St. James’ Park appears very likely.
Pires was recently spotted liking a comment from Newcastle fan @Liamwillis21 on Instagram yesterday. Check out the screenshots below –
