As per the Liverpool Echo report, Liverpool, Real Madrid, and Chelsea have expressed interest in securing the services of Bruno Guimaraes for the upcoming season. However, recent updates suggest that the Brazilian midfielder is on the verge of finalising a new contract with Newcastle United.
Guimaraes’ Recent Performance In The Premier League
At the start of this Premier League season with Newcastle United, Guimaraes faced some challenges, but he has managed to deliver several commendable performances in the heart of Eddie Howe’s midfield. The 25-year-old Brazilian has participated in four matches for the Magpies across various competitions.
Notably, he has made a positive impact at both ends of the pitch, boasting impressive statistics including an average of 2.3 tackles, 0.5 clearances, 1.0 shots, 0.8 key passes, and 1.0 dribbles per game in Premier League action. Furthermore, his ball distribution has been noteworthy, with an 88% pass completion rate in league matches (statistics sourced from whoscored).
With his existing contract at St. James’ Park set to conclude in the summer of 2026, there is no urgency for Eddie Howe to sell him next summer. However, the Newcastle boss does not wish to part ways with the Brazilian which is why a new contract might be in play.
Can Klopp Bring Him To Liverpool Next Summer?
Guimaraes excels in ball-winning ability, presenting a formidable challenge for opponents in the midfield. His powerful long-range shots and capacity to orchestrate scoring opportunities for his teammates in the attacking third are noteworthy attributes.
The Brazilian midfielder also displays intelligence in his off-the-ball runs from the midfield position. While primarily employed as a holding midfielder, he can seamlessly transition into a box-to-box role when required.
Howe considers Guimaraes an integral part of his starting lineup at Newcastle, and at the age of 25, the player has his prime years ahead. Consequently, the Magpies are unlikely to entertain offers for his departure next summer, and this would be especially challenging for Jurgen Klopp to navigate if the Brazilian midfielder commits to a new contract at St. James’ Park.
