Failing to meet the Red Bull Arena natives’ asking price could see us miss out on landing Bruce’s primary attacking target, and have no choice but to push on with acquiring Braga’s Horta and bring the long-term Benitez target, finally, to St. James’ Park.

Newcastle United have begun targeting SC Braga winger Ricardo Horta having struggled to get a deal for RB Leipzig’s Ademola Lookman over the line, according to O Jogo via Sport Witness.

In other Newcastle United news, a pundit has backed a £1.8m-rated Toon man to leave Tyneside this year amid widespread interest.

Lookman is the club’s primary forward target to join Steve Bruce at St. James’ Park this month, but Leipzig are said to be playing hardball over whether or not they look to sell the former Everton attacker this month.

The Estadio Municipal de Braga natives President Antonio Salvador is expected to request around €25m (£21.4m) to €30m (£25.7m) to sell Horta during the winter market, having increased the 25-year-old’s release clause when he penned a new contract in September.

Braga would not react positively to such an offer, though, as the Liga NOS outfit would demand a much larger fee to part ways with their 13 goals, six assists star.

Should no progress be made in acquiring the London-born talent, it is thought we could soon lodge a £10million bid to sign Braga ace Horta, who was long a target of Rafa Benitez during the Spaniard’s tenure on Tyneside.
