Newcastle: Magpies eyeing up Gonzalo Plata move -Follow up

Newcastle United are thought to be interested in making a move for Ecuador midfielder Gonzalo Plata, according to a fresh transfer update.

The Lowdown: Plata tastes victory with Ecuador

The 2022 World Cup got underway on Sunday afternoon, with Ecuador getting their tournament off to an ideal start with a deserved 2-0 victory.

Plata started on the right-hand side of midfield for the South American side, playing his part in the win and enjoying a 90% pass completion rate, according to Sofascore.

As the 22-year-old looks to continue impressing in Qatar, a key update has emerged regarding his future.

The Latest: Newcastle keen on move

According to Give Me Sport, Newcastle ‘rate’ Plata, although Brighton’s already Ecuador-heavy squad means he could be tempted to move to the south coast.

The Real Valladolid star is tipped to ‘mesmerise’ supporters at the World Cup, due to the ‘trickery’ that he possesses.

The Verdict: Good for squad depth

With Eddie Howe looking to build a formidable squad at Newcastle, Plata is exactly the type of player who could come in and provide strong competition for places.

At 22, the Ecuadorian would be seen as a long-term acquisition, as the Magpies look to force their way back into the European scene and eventually win major trophies in English football.

Plata already has top-level experience, making 10 appearances in La Liga to date, winning 31 caps for his country and proving to be a key figure, and he could be an exciting fresh attacking option at St James’ Park.
