NEWCASTLE have bid £33.5million for Arsenal and Juventus target Bruno Guimaraes, reports say.
Midfielder Bruno Guimaraes is being targeted by relegation strugglers Newcastle with a huge financial package
Guimaraes has ‘never hidden’ his ‘desire to play in the Premier League’.
And it appears the Magpies have made the first major move in the hunt for the 24-year-old.
The Toon hope to pounce early as Guimaraes’ rivals were instead thought to be lining up summer offers.
But so far Lyon have appeared keen to keep the three-cap Brazil ace until at least the end of the season.
Guimaraes too believes he would have more transfer options in the summer.
But Newcastle are putting together a staggering package for him.
Arsenal, meanwhile, are for now focusing more on Guimaraes’ international team-mate Arthur.

Emirates boss Mikel Arteta still hopes to lure the 25-year-old Juventus midfielder on loan for the remainder of the campaign.
Newcastle, though, face missing out if they pursue Atalanta left-back Robin Gosens.
Inter Milan are regarded as favourites for the Germany star, 27.
