Newcastle United Hoping For Quick Breakthrough In Talks To Keep Liverpool Target Bruno Guimaraes

The Magpies finished fourth in the Premier League with 71 points, securing a place in next season’s Champions League.

Guimaraes was a key man in Newcastle’s heroics and his performances and adaptation to the Premier League have not gone unnoticed, with Liverpool now keen.

The Brazilian midfielder, who joined the Magpies from French club Lyon in January 2022, is under contract with the club until 2026.

Newcastle are aware that Guimaraes is a wanted man and are keen to lock him down on fresh terms.

It has been claimed that talks are under way, with both parties hoping for an agreement to be reached quickly.

The Magpies are interested in extending the contracts of a number of players, notably 33-year old winger Matt Ritchie, in addition to the Brazilian midfielder.

Guimaraes started 32 Premier League games for Newcastle this season and was instrumental in the club qualifying for the Champions League next season.


Defender linked with Liverpool transfer names two Virgil van Dijk qualities he tries to mimic

Barcelona stalwart Ronald Araujo has named Virgil van Dijk as his biggest influence in football.

Like many La Masia academy products, Araujo is a South American who was poached for the Catalonian outfit’s world-famous youth setup at an early age. The Uruguayan has come of age over the last two years to become an integral part of Xavi’s resurgent Barca side.

Winning a first La Liga title in four years was a landmark event for the club and Araujo more than played his part, starting 22 games as the Catalans won the title with four games to spare. Only injuries have kept the centre-back – still just 24 – on the sidelines this season.

At the same age, Liverpool veteran Van Dijk was plying his trade at Glasgow giants Celtic. It was not until a Premier League move, first with Southampton before joining the Reds five years ago, that the Dutchman became a European household name.

Speaking to The Athletic, Araujo has named Van Dijk as a role model for how he aims to develop his game. The Barcelona defender said: “There are various players I watch and I try to take the best from each of them. These days it’s Van Dijk.

“Manchester City’s defenders as well are playing at a good level this season. I analyse a bit from all of them. The movements they make, how they move the ball, trying to learn.”

Ironically, Liverpool were among a host of Premier League clubs reportedly considering a move for Araujo earlier this year. Manchester United and Chelsea also found themselves linked with a potential £60million deal – but the Uruguayan has insisted he is happy in Spain, recently penning a contract extension until 2026.

“I showed with my renewal that I’m happy and I want to be here,” Araujo added. “Nothing more. I think these are things that get resolved. I rejected very important offers; in various cases, even more than they gave me here.

“I’m happy here. We live in a world in which money is very important but, for me, it’s not the most important thing. I was doing well here, the people love me, and I feel at home. That’s the most important thing.”
