Newcastle ahead of Burnley, Napoli for Benfica wing-back Nuno Tavares

Benfica wing-back Nuno Tavares is attracting interest from England.

O Jogo says Newcastle and Burnley are both interested in Tavares, along with Italy's Napoli.

And Benfica are willing to listen to offers for the left-back after Tavares lost his first-choice status this season under coach Jorge Jesus.

Newcastle are showing the most serious interest, having already made contact with Benfica.

The Portuguese giants are seeking around €15m to sell.
