Lyon midfielder Bruno Guimaraes is set to undergo a medical on Friday ahead of completing a move to Newcastle.
Guimaraes will take a medical in his homeland of Brazil after Newcastle agreed a package worth in the region of £33m plus add-ons with French club Lyon to sign the midfielder.
Arsenal were among a number of clubs interested in signing Guimaraes, who has also been watched closely by Manchester United and PSG, but Eddie Howe's side are now on the verge of clinching the 24-year-old's signature.
Guimaraes has made 25 appearances in all competitions for Lyon this season, registering six assists. He has three caps for the Brazil national team.
Bruno Guimarães medical tests with Newcastle are scheduled in Belo Horizonte today, once final details are resolved. ⏳🇧🇷 #NUFC— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) January 28, 2022
