Reports have surfaced indicating that Arsenal have joined a host of other clubs to battle for the signature of highly-rated Brazilian and Newcastle United midfielder Bruno Guimaraes. 

Valued at a significant €115 million, Guimaraes is said to have a release clause of €100 million. The midfielder made the move to Newcastle United in January 2022 for a reported fee of €35 million and has been imperious in midfield, featuring in 99 appearances for the team, scoring 13 goals and providing 13 assists. In the current season, Guimaraes has played in 42 matches, recording three goals and seven assists.

Newcastle United’s financial challenges, especially concerning Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations, could potentially lead to the necessity of selling Guimaraes in the upcoming summer transfer window.

Despite Newcastle manager Eddie Howe’s desire to retain the 26-year-old defensive midfielder, the club’s financial predicament may compel them to consider bids for the player. Guimaraes has attracted interest from various top European clubs, with PSG showing a keen interest and reportedly being willing to meet his release clause.

A source referenced by The Sun highlighted the competitive landscape Newcastle may face in holding onto Guimaraes, given his high standing in the global football scene. While Arsenal and Manchester United are reportedly in the mix for the midfielder, PSG is believed to view him as their top target and have been monitoring him closely for an extended period. With his current contract running until the end of the 2027-28 season, Guimaraes is seen as a player who could significantly boost the midfield strength of any elite European club.

The possible need to offload Guimaraes due to financial constraints could pose a challenging decision for Newcastle, who would ideally want to keep such a talented player. However, the financial realities of the situation may dictate otherwise, potentially leading to a transfer involving one of the most sought-after midfielders in the game. 

With interest from top clubs like Arsenal, Manchester United, and PSG, the summer transfer window may hold significant developments regarding Guimaraes’ future.
