Newcastle United star Bruno Guimaraes has commented on the possibility of Eddie Howe signing Lucas Paqueta this summer amid Tone’s interest in his former Lyon teammate.

Bruno Guimarães ‘would love’ Newcastle United to sign Lucas Paqueta from Lyon

Bruno Guimaraes told The Mirror he “loves” Newcastle United to sign Lucas Paqueta from Lyon, with coach Eddie Howe reportedly interested in the Brazil international.

Howe has already raided Les Gones once this year to secure Guimaraes’ transfer from the Ligue 1 outfit in January. The Magpies have agreed to pay the 24-year-old £35m up front, plus another £6.5m after additions. He also agreed to sign a four-and-a-half-year contract.

Guimaraes had a slow start to his career in Tyneside as Howe sought to allow the midfielder to settle in St James’ Park. But he’s now set to be the Magpies’ mascot this season, having proven a huge hit in black and white as the Northeast side snagged a relegation.

Support Newcastle Howe in response to ensuring the club’s Premier League safety in summer sales. Tone also awarded him a new contract, and he is active in the market to further strengthen his squad through new links with Atalanta striker Luis Morell.

Paqueta is also a major target on Howe’s shortlist, with Newcastle interested in another deal with Lyon this year. The Times has indicated that United are ready to smash their record spending to sign the Brazilian, who Les John estimates in the region at £50m as his contract runs until 2025.

Imagine Lucas Paqueta after Bruno Guimarães to St James’ Park

Paqueta is open to joining Newcastle amid strong Howe interest as well, with Chronicle Live noting that the Lyon star has considered what it would be like to follow Guimaraes to Tyneside.

The duo developed a close friendship while at Groupama Stadium together, and have met since Guimaraes joined Newcastle. Paqueta was also photographed wearing a tun shirt in Guimarães Park, but there were no transport-related links about this case.

‘Paqueta in black and white again?’ Guimarães admits it’s hard to say. ‘I love it!’ But I do not work in this field, I am a player. I invited him and we played together in my garden. [The photo] It was just that. “
