Newcastle To Sign Brazilian Starlet? Check Out The 17-Year-Old In Action

According to the Guardian, this morning, Newcastle are fighting it out with continental giants Roma and Benfica over the services of Coritiba's Abner.

The 17-year-old left-back represented Brazil U-17s (naturally) in the U-17s World Cup last month (noticing a pattern here...) and his displays have attracted some serious attention from across the footballing world.

Fast, strong and with an eye for goal, who wouldn't want to see a Brazilian wing-back in the moulds of the great Cafu or Bobby Carlos in their side? Whether or not the young Londrina-native will be able to handle the harsh Tyne temperatures is quite another matter...
