Newcastle United are reportedly interested in signing Goncalo Inacio at the end of the season.
The Magpies have one of the top defensive lines in the Premier League this campaign, however, the club plans to further develop it in the summer.
Portugal international is currently one of the brightest young defenders in Europe, and Eddie Howe might consider him to be an excellent investment for the future.
According to SPORF, the Premier League outfit have already begun talks with the 21-year-old's representative ahead of a potential summer transfer.
Newcastle are one of the wealthiest teams in the world, therefore they undoubtedly have funds to pay the £45 million fee Sporting Lisbon asks in order to sell the player.
However, they will face challenging competition from fellow domestic rival Manchester United as Erik ten Hags' side are also interested in signing Inacio.
