Joelinton of Newcastle United celebrates with teammate Bruno Guimaraes following the team

Bruno Guimaraes and Joelinton name the Brazilian international they want Eddie Howe to bring to Newcastle

Newcastle United’s Brazilian duo Bruno Guimaraes and Joelinton were in agreement over which of their countrymen they would ideally like to join them at the club if they had their way.

In an interview with YouTube channel That’s Football, the pair were asked a purely hypothetical question, with both players suggesting that West Ham United’s Lucas Paqueta would fit right into Eddie Howe’s dressing room.

Guimaraes said: “For me, I played with him at Lyon: I would say Lucas Paqueta is one of my best friends, I like him, so I would say him.”

Joelinton added an additional suggestion that would have Magpies fans in absolute rapture if it were ever to actually happen, saying: “It’s a tough question! Yeah, Paqueta, or Vinicius Jr…he’s a lovely guy as well.”
