Newcastle United 'to explore Portuguese transfer market' this summer

Newcastle United are to focus their summer spending on players from the Portuguese Primeira Liga, according to a report.

Newcastle United are reportedly planning to turn their attention to Portugal during the transfer window in order to add some depth to the squad.

The Magpies, who have lost their last five games in the Premier League, have already begun drawing up plans for this summer, which include exploring different markets, according to The Northern Echo.

Chief scout Graham Carr will look to bring in players from the Primeira Liga in the hope of gaining value for money, having previously had success recruiting from France and Holland.

The report suggests that Alan Pardew is interested in signing a playmaker, while also keeping close tabs on Sporting Lisbon winger Diego Capel and Filip Djuricic.

Newcastle have previously been linked with moves for French duo Remy Cabella and Alexandre Lacazette.
