After a disappointing result against Luton Town at St. James' Park, it was only a matter of time before Newcastle transfer news about possible defensive signings would come to the fore. 24 hours later, it seems like, Newcastle United has finally picked the player who might solve their defensive woes. And, the name of that player is Goncalo Inacio. The Sporting centre-back is on the radar of multiple European clubs including Manchester United. Therefore, Eddie Howe and Newcastle will be in a transfer race to sign the Portuguese international. Liverpool was interested in signing the player in January and was ready to pay his release clause of €60m. So, will Newcastle sign the player? Only time will tell.

Newcastle is struggling defensively. Botman and Burn have come out as the weak links in the defence of the Magpies. Goncalo Inaciao has looked strong and could be a great partner for someone like Fabian Schar who at times looked alone in the heart of Newcastle's defence. However, if Newcastle signs Inacio, it will be interesting to see whether he can become the perfect solution for Eddie Howe. So far, Inacio has done incredibly well with Sporting and the Magpies would hope he could continue playing like that if they get his signature.
