Chelsea are looking to solve their midfield problems with the signing of Newcastle United player Bruno Guimaraes. However, the Magpies will offer a club-record contract to keep the 24-year-old midfielder beyond this campaign. Bruno joined Newcastle United from Lyon back in the winter.
And Guimaraes has proven to be an exceptional signing for Eddie Howe. Brazil international has established himself as one of the best midfielders in the PL, and it is no surprise that the top teams are looking to secure his signature. The Brazilian midfielder was recently linked with a move to Real Madrid as well.
The Magpies know that the South American midfielder has the potential to develop into a world-class footballer. So they are looking to shatter their wage structure to tie him down to a long-term deal. It will be interesting to see if the Brazilian is willing to commit his future to the club in the coming weeks.
Meanwhile, the London giants are looking to reinforce their midfield at the end of the campaign. Kante has struggled with persistent injury problems, and Jorginho could leave the club at the end of the campaign when his deal expires.
Graham Potter is in desperate need of a quality midfielder, and Guimaraes would be an exceptional signing for the Blues. The South American midfielder is well-settled in the PL, and he could make an immediate impact at Chelsea next campaign.
