Newcastle United have reportedly outlined their intentions to move for Barcelona winger Raphinha, according to Fichajes.
The 26-year-old has had an inconsistent season, and the Catalan giants may assess his future at the end of the season.
Following their recent takeover, Newcastle United are eager to make significant signings, with a number of high-profile names on their radar.
Under the leadership of Eddie Howe, the Magpies have developed a team that is contending for a Champions League spot. Although recent setbacks have caused them to slip from fourth place.
In the upcoming transfer window, Newcastle United’s leadership may shift their approach by leveraging their financial resources to bring in high-quality players who can enhance the squad. Reports suggest that they are eyeing a top midfielder and may also seek to bolster their attack and defence.
The Blaugrana have struggled in the European competitions and the financial impact of their Europa League elimination may prompt them to sell some of their prized assets to make way for new arrivals.
Raphinha could be one of the players on the chopping block, as several clubs have expressed interest in acquiring him.
While recent reports have suggested that Raphinha wants to stay at Camp Nou and fight for his place.
Newcastle may also be interested in pursuing the Brazilian ace, but they may have to compete with Arsenal for his signature.
