Newcastle United: Magpies have ‘already begun to move’ for Vanderson

Newcastle United: Magpies have ‘already begun to move’ for Vanderson -Newcastle United News

Newcastle United have reportedly ‘already begun to move’ for AS Monaco right-back Vanderson.

The Lowdown: Krafth injury

Emil Krafth is set to miss the majority of the season with an ACL injury, meaning that the St. James’ Park outfit only have Kieran Trippier and Javier Manquillo to call upon in the right-back area.

The latter was suggested to potentially be leaving in the summer transfer window, so perhaps the North East club are looking for new long-term competition for Trippier.

The Latest: Vanderson movement

As per Sport (via Sport Witness), Dan Ashworth and Co have ‘already begun to move’ for Vanderson ahead of January, but will likely face competition from FC Barcelona for his signature.

However, Monaco are thought to be demanding a hefty €60m (£52m) to sell him outright.

The Verdict: Too expensive

£52m seems far too much money to spend on a player that will likely rotate with Trippier, and so is not a guaranteed starter.

Nonetheless, Vanderson would still be a quality signing if Eddie Howe’s side can negotiate the price down or perhaps secure a loan agreement.

European football expert Antonio Mango highlights his strengths as having ‘lightning-pace’, ‘quick feet’, ‘beautiful technique’ and being a ‘dead-ball specialist’, so he certainly would complement Trippier very well.

At 21 years of age, Vanderson has already played 33 times for Monaco, scoring two goals and making three assists (Transfermarkt), and will surely be catching the eyes of the Brazil national team soon too.

He also shares the same agent as fellow Brazilian and Magpies midfielder Bruno Guimaraes, which could help push a deal through.
