Last season, Goncalo Inacio got into the starting XI for Sporting Lisbon who won the Primeira Liga and lost just one game in 18 months, but while the performances weren’t outstanding, the potential is clear to see.
This season, however, his performances have vastly improved and he is looking like he could make an impact on a team in a top league and it looks just a matter of time until we see him make the move elsewhere.
For Sporting, Inacio plays in a back three as one of the wide centre-backs, a formation which Eddie Howe has implemented at points in his tenure as Newcastle manager. Inacio has both on-ball and off-ball abilities which could work really well as a wide centre-back in the Premier League.
The 20-year-old Portuguese star could cost Newcastle between £15m-£25m.
