Liverpool receive fresh transfer hope for Bruno Guimaraes after Newcastle turnaround

Liverpool receive fresh transfer hope for Bruno Guimaraes after Newcastle turnaround

Newcastle United’s recent signing could open up opportunities for Liverpool in the transfer market.

Liverpool, under new leadership of Arne Slot, are yet to announce any new signings this summer. Slot, who was appointed as Jurgen Klopp’s successor earlier this year, will oversee pre-season training at the AXA Training Centre later this month.




Despite the lack of new faces in the squad, there has been no shortage of speculation about potential additions. One name that has been linked with the Reds is Bruno Guimaraes.

The Brazilian midfielder, who is currently representing his country at the Copa America alongside Liverpool’s Alisson Becker, is strongly rumoured to be on a move away from Newcastle this summer, with Manchester City also reportedly interested.

This week, Newcastle confirmed the appointment of Paul Mitchell as their new sporting director. Mitchell had previously been linked with a similar role at Liverpool following Julian Ward’s departure last year, but the Reds recently appointed Richard Hughes, with Ward now working at Fenway Sports Group (FSG), reports the Liverpool Echo.

Newcastle’s decision to bring in Mitchell follows Dan Ashworth’s move to Manchester United earlier this week. The former sporting director was responsible for ensuring the Magpies adhered to the Profit and Sustainability Rules (PSR) ahead of the June 30 deadline.

Newcastle have managed to comply with financial regulations due to the sales of Elliot Anderson and Yankuba Minteh, but there are rumours that more departures from St James’ Park could be on the horizon this summer.
