Bruno Guimaraes set for Newcastle United medical

Lyon midfielder Bruno Guimaraes is ready to undergo a medical ahead of a €40m to Premier League outfit Newcastle United. He has been linked with a move away from the Ligue 1 side all month, with the likes of Arsenal, Juventus, and Manchester United mentioned as possible destinations.

The Magpies have now overtaken the lot and are in pole position with sources indicating that Lyon have accepted a €40m bid for the player.

Meanwhile, Guimaraes is currently on international duty with Brazil but this development is not expected to slow the move down.

According to David Ornstein, he will undergo a medical in Ecuador before Brazil’s away game tomorrow.

Guimaraes has been impressive for Lyon this season with 20 Ligue 1 appearances and 3 assists to his name. Personal terms between parties involved are yet to be agreed but this should not pose any challenge.

The Magpies are reportedly ready to offer the player an increase in wages with the player set to be their third signing this month after the arrivals of Chris Wood and Kieran Trippier.
