There is no doubt that the South American is one of the best midfielders in the league and he has the ability to justify the asking price. He could transform Arsenal or Liverpool in the middle of the park. He will control, composure and defensive cover to the side.

Arsenal need to bring in a reliable partner for Declan Rice and Guimaraes will help them control the tempo of the game from the deep. He will also add craft and composure. Jorginho is past his peak and the Brazilian would be the ideal replacement.

Similarly, Liverpool need more quality in the middle of the park as well. Thiago Alcantara will not be at the club next season and he will need to be replaced adequately. The 26-year-old Newcastle star certainly fits the profile. He is well settled in the Premier League and he could make an instant impact at Anfield.

Guimaraes will probably want to join a big club capable of winning trophies now. Arsenal and Liverpool will be attractive destinations for him. Newcastle are still in the rebuilding stages of their project and they are unlikely to compete for major trophies soon.

It will be interesting to see if Arsenal and Liverpool are willing to pay the reported asking price for the Brazilian in the coming weeks.

Meanwhile, Manchester City are keen on the player as well and they have already met with his agents. They certainly have the financial resources to win the race for his signature and it remains to be seen how the situation develops.
