Bruno Guimaraes Newcastle

According to talkSPORT’s Jamie O’Hara via HITC, Newcastle United star Bruno Guimaraes will join Arsenal this summer.

Due to FFP difficulties, Newcastle may have to sell at least one of their big stars at the end of the season with Alexander Isak and Bruno Guimaraes touted as their most sellable assets.

Arsenal are showing a keen interest in the pair, with The Sun claiming that the Gunners are battling Man Utd for Guimaraes. Other than those two, reports suggest that PSG and Real Madrid are interested in the ex-Lyon star and have been scouting him.

Guimaraes Emirates bound

As clubs prepare for the Guimaraes transfer battle, talkSPORT’s Jamie O’Hara has made a bold prediction on where Guimaraes will play next season.

He claims that the South American ‘will go to Arsenal’ in the summer.  O’Hara said of Newcastle’s need to sell Alexander Isak and Guimaraes:

“We will give you £60 million for him (Isak). We will take him off your hands. Bruno will go to Arsenal as well. Just letting you know. You have to regroup next season. You will stay up.”

Guimaraes is without a doubt one of the best all-round midfielders in Europe so he would be a superb signing for Arsenal if they could pull it off.

Arsenal were interested in him before he moved to St. James Park, but Newcastle were quicker to sign him in the winter of 2022, agreeing to a £40 million deal.

He’s been excellent since moving to the Premier League, and Newcastle would hate to lose him, but they may have to cash-in to balance the books. And if O’Hara is correct, Arsenal will be recruiting one hell of a player.

As a Gunner, Guimaraes might wind up playing with Martin Odegaard and Declan Rice in one of the Premier League’s best midfields ever. Thomas Partey is expected to leave the Emirates this summer and Guimaraes would be an excellent replacement.

Predictions of Arsenal winning the Guimaraes race are exciting, but a deal won’t be cheap given the midfielder has a £100 million release clause.
