Newcastle United star Bruno Guimaraes has urged the Magpies to bring his “best friend” Lucas Paqueta to St James’ Park next season.
The £58million star is currently having a great season with his old club Lyon and Bruno would love to be lining up alongside him next term in a black and white jersey. Paqueta has been scouted by Arsenal and Paris St-Germain in recent times.
Speaking in the club programme, Bruno was asked who he would like to see at Newcastle, and said: “Ah, Lucas Paqueta. He is my brother, my best friend and I really get on with him.
“We have the same way of thinking, we are the same age and we were together every day – always talking to each other. He is a family member that football has given me.
“And I hope that he’s happy wherever he is. He’s a great guy with a massive heart and people like that deserve the very best.”
