Franco Cervi has enjoyed a good season with Benfica
Monday, April 23, 2018
West Ham, Brighton and Swansea are also reportedly monitoring the £20million-rated Argentine.
Cervi has had a successful season with the Portuguese outfit, having started 27 of their 31 top-flight games this season but the 23-year-old is reportedly eager to move to England at the end of the season.
Magpies boss Rafa Benitez is desperate to add a left winger to his squad this summer and Cervi appears the perfect match, especially if they cant acquire Chelsea man Kenedy for another season.
Cervi, known as Little Chucky by fans hails from Rosario which is also home to Argentina superstars including Lionel Messi, Angel di Maria, Ezequiel Lavezzi, Mauro Icardi, Maxi Rodriguez, Ever Banega and Ezequiel Garay.
