Newcastle United keen to beat Southampton to the signature of Portuguese winger Matchoi Bobo Djalo, according to a report from Football Insider.
St James Park has been touted as a possible destination for the young sensation, whose emergence onto the first-team scene at Pacos de Ferreira has caught the eye of many.
Djalo became the youngest (16) player to feature in the top flight of Portugal this season when he came on against Benfica, and clubs from across Europe are seemingly interested.
Djalo is clearly a man in demand, and it’s little wonder given his rapid rise to senior football at a high level.
The future of Portuguese football is extremely bright, with a host of young talents boasting plenty of potential, and the 16-year-old seems to be among those who could go on to big things.
