Report: Newcastle hope Bruno Guimaraes can help them sign South American talent

Newcastle United have a South American superstar in Bruno Guimaraes right now, and they want to sign more in the future.

The Magpies are planning for the present and the future when it comes to transfers, and have already completed one deal ahead of the January transfer window.

Australian wonderkid Garang Kuol is set to join the Magpies from Central Coast Mariners, with the 18-year-old tipped to have an exciting future at St James’ Park.

Sporting Director Dan Ashworth is being tasked with bringing in young stars who can develop into key players for Newcastle, and are turning their attentions to South American after the Kuol deal.

That is the market the Magpies want to tap into next, and believe they have an ace up their sleeve when it comes to negotiations.

Bruno’s transfer role as Newcastle look to sign South American youngsters

Ahead of the January transfer window, Newcastle have been linked with some exciting stars from Brazil.

There is reportedly confidence that a deal can be agreed with Vasco Da Gama to sign Andrey Santos. He is an 18-year-old midfielder who Juninho Pernambucano believes will be better than he was.

There have also been links with Santos forward Angelo Gabriel, who Head of Recruitment Steve Nickson went to watch earlier this year.

They are just two names who Newcastle have been linked with signing from Brazil. And there is reportedly belief that Bruno can help get deals for these kind of players over the line.

In a report from i News, they claim that the club want to use Bruno’s impact at St James’ Park to help them make signings from South America in the coming years. They name Santos and Gabriel as two potential signings.

In Bruno, Newcastle have a poster boy. He can be the focal point of the PIF project, and was the first player from abroad to take the plunge and join the Magpies.

And he can also be the poster boy for South American talent. It is clear to see how adored he is on Tyneside, and how much he is enjoying his football at Newcastle. His pulling power will only increase if he stars at the World Cup for Brazil this winter.

Newcastle have a star of the present and the future in Bruno, and they want to sign up some of the world’s brightest talents. Unsurprisingly, many of them reside in Brazil, and Toon chiefs hope Bruno can help bring them to the North East.
