The Daily Telegraph journalist Luke Edwards has now revealed some Newcastle United transfer news on Arnaut Danjuma and Lucas Paqueta.
The Lowdown: More business?
The Magpies have already brought Matt Targett, Nick Pope and Sven Botman to St James’ Park this summer, and will now focus on other potential targets.
The Latest: Edwards’ update
Taking to Twitter, Edwards has now revealed that Newcastle will not be pursuing deals for either Danjuma or Paqueta this summer, although the situation regarding more potential incomings is ‘very relaxed’ at this moment in time.
The report tweeted: “It’s very quiet on transfers as I said it would be. #nufc haven’t had any bids for players they don’t need and are continuing to wait for right attacking players to become available. Told it’s very relaxed but Paqueta still a no as is Danjuma from Villarreal in this window.”
The Verdict: Shame
It would be a shame if the Magpies were to miss out on Danjuma and Paqueta this summer, especially if they move to other clubs in the Premier League.
Should Newcastle sign Danjuma?
Paqueta managed a handy 11 goals and seven assists from midfield (Transfermarkt), and he is good friends with former Lyon team-mate and fellow Brazilian Bruno Guimaraes, who now plays for the Magpies.
Nonetheless, Newcastle should not sleep on either if the opportunity becomes available to sign them later in the summer.
