Sunderland boss, Gus Poyet is reportedly tracking highly rated Portuguese starlet, Bruma according to the Northern Echo.

Cesare Prandelli, Galatasaray’s coach has been told by higher authority that the club will only let Bruma leave if the Turkish side can recoup the the money in which they paid Sporting for him.

Bruma, 20, is an exciting talent but has struggled to hold down a first team place at Galatasaray. Poyet tried to lure Bruma to the club in January but that enquiry was knocked back by Sporting. However, Poyet feels he may be able to get his man this time around seeing as he is not playing regular first team football.

The pacey winger has been lapping up the plaudits since impressing for Sporting. Bruma’s electric pace would be a huge asset to Sunderland who will look to exploit all the strengths of the youngster should he join. Raw, fresh and hungry to succeed, Bruma has all the credentials to do well, still young, the Portuguese starlet could make a name for himself if he was to make the move to England.

Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United have all been interested in the winger, but it appears that interest cooled when he moved to Turkey. Sunderland look the favourites to snap up Bruma.

“Sunderland wanted to loan Bruma in January,” said the player’s agent Marco Kirdemir. “This summer Everton and Monaco wanted Bruma on loan, they had been keeping tabs on him for a while. I can see Bruma playing in the Premier League in the future.”

Will the Black Cats bring in one of the most exciting attacking players to the Premier League in January?
