24-year-old prepares to undergo medical examination before moving to Newcastle, in Ecuador
The Athletic claims Lyon midfielder Bruno Guimaraes is set to undergo a medical in Ecuador before moving to Newcastle. It comes after reports from Brazil said Lyon had accepted a Toon bid.
Bruno, 24, has had a couple of great seasons at Lyon since moving from Atletico Paranense. In those two years, Bruno made 71 appearances in all competitions for the Ligue 1 side in their midfield position.
Regarded as one of the best teams in their place in French football, Newcastle have made their move. Globo Esporte reports that a fee of £33.5m has been accepted by Lyon, from Newcastle. Arsenal are also being contacted.
Now, the latest report from The Athletic says a medical calendar has been scheduled in South America, Ecuador specifically – with Bruno currently playing for the Brazil national team. The two countries play on Thursday, at 9pm.
The player himself has been touted about a move to North London, but it is believed that Bruno has been offered a much higher salary at Newcastle – and is keen to move. Amanda Staveley held a transfer meeting on Monday.
