Eddie Howe confirms Arsenal has a deadline to sign Newcastle star

Eddie Howe has confirmed that Bruno Guimaraes has a release clause. However, it also comes with a deadline, which means Arsenal must sign him by then or forget about it.

The midfielder is on the radar of Arsenal and Manchester City as both Premier League giants work hard to improve their squads.

The Gunners are hopeful they will beat their rivals to sign the Brazilian, but their biggest competitor might be time.

Newcastle convinced him to sign his latest contract by including a time-bound release clause worth around £100 million.

Guimaraes agreed with the club’s idea that his future has to be sorted out promptly so it does not disrupt his preparation for the new season.

Reports claim it is only valid for the first four weeks after the end of the campaign, and Howe has confirmed this.

The Newcastle gaffer said, as quoted by The Sun:

“We don’t want the constant speculation, it’s not healthy for the player or for us.

“Having the release clause was well planned and structured by the club, in the sense that there is a finish point.

“It goes without saying what my thoughts on the Bruno situation are.

“We want to keep him, we want to build our team around him and he’s an integral part of what we are doing. He seems very happy and settled.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Guimaraes has been one of the best midfielders in the Premier League, and four weeks post-season is enough for any club to wrap up a move for his signature.

  1. We will not allow Newcastle to hold us to ransom, they need to sell more than how we need to buy.

    Further more both Camavinga and Douglas Luiz offer more base on how we wants to play.

  2. Yea its their player they can come up with whatever they want of their player possibly or not clubs looking for him have their right too it isn’t a must it just if possible with a reasonable amount of money and remember there’s fair play in buying players so anything gose
    Gunners knows what they want and how to get it too not in madness
    Take what you have to get your need
    Gunners for life win or lose winnings is our life

  3. I will rather prefer we go for Camavingar or Douglas Louis. The release clause of 100M is much for him. That amount will get us beast of a striker. Let’s not fall prey to them.

  4. Guimares is a good player but his and injury prone situation is a concern talk less of the release clause of 100 million ain’t worth it. Arsenal can buy 2 young and promising Guimares with that millions.

  5. Douglas Luiz is the most overated player I have seen. Watched him last night. Offers nothing.
