Valued at £9million, the price-tag for this Brazilian midfielder would ordinarily be well outside of our budget.

But with his contract with Barcelona due to expire at the end of June 2016, the Catalan club could well be willing to listen to offers instead of losing him for nothing in the summer.

Scoring four times in thirty two appearances for Celta Vigo during the 2013-14 season saw him get a call up for the Brazil national team. He now has two international caps with one goal to his name.

Putting in a performance in the sunshine of Brazil and Spain in one thing, but could he perform on a cold, damp windy February night in the North East of England? I would love to find out.
