In recent months, the 18-year-old golden boy Andri Santos , who is currently playing for Vasco da Gama in Brazil , has become a favorite of many top clubs in Europe, and today’s Premier League Newcastle United expressed that he is willing to transfer in January next summer. Window to introduce the Brazilian midfield star is very confident and imperative.
rising star santos
Santos jumped from the Vasco da Gama youth team to the first team last year, and has emerged in the Brazilian Serie B this year, contributing 7 goals in 32 games, becoming the club’s all-time record for Vasco da Gama. The youngest player to score a goal.
The new star is also one of the most promising young midfielders in Brazilian football at the moment. As a defensive midfielder, he has shown impressive results this year, with 54 successful tackles in 28 games. The ball and 21 interceptions, he is known for his tough stealing and aggressive skills and abilities, but also greatly improved the team’s defensive end, becoming the main force of the first team this year.
With his superb performance, this excellent young midfielder has not only attracted the attention of Newcastle United in the Premier League, but also from teams such as Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain and Aston Villa in the Premier League.
Santos worth over £20m
According to sources, Newcastle United are leading the transfer battle after being the first to contact Vasco da Gama and the player a few months ago to lay the groundwork for the summer transfer window.
Vasco da Gama recently signed a five-year contract extension with the Brazilian golden boy until 2027, which puts the team in a good position to sell this young asset in the transfer window.
Vasco da Gama is understood to offer more than £20m to sell the under-20 star.
Newcastle United are willing to spend a lot of money to introduce and form a strong youth team
Newcastle United, however, do not appear to be overly concerned about the transfer fee and have expressed a willingness to spend to push for an agreement in the January transfer window.
Newcastle United’s youth team signed Galway United’s 18-year-old left-back Alex Murphy and Sukki Marnock’s 17-year-old defender Charlie MacArthur this summer, and brought in Australia last month. The 18-year-old striker, Garon Kool, will form a future strong squad in the youth team. I believe that Newcastle United will successfully sign Santos next summer and will be able to play in the youth team.
If Santos can make his mark in the youth team, he will have a chance to make his Premier League debut in the rotation of Newcastle United under manager Eddie Howe.
