House - Where does he live?
Location: Tyneside, England
St. James' Park upon Tyne will play host to the Brazilian hitman for the foreseeable future. There have been many great No.9's to play for The Magpies, big shoes to fill for the South American forward.
Born in Aliança, Brazil, he joined the youth academy of Brazilian second-division side Sport Recife in 2010 as a 14-year old. After promising displays in the Campeonato Brasileiro Série A he was scouted and offered a five-year contract by German Bundesliga outfit TSG Hoffenheim. On 18 December 2015, he made his league debut for Hoffenheim, as a late substitute, in a 1-0 defeat to Schalke 04. Still young and inexperienced, the forward was sent out for a two-year loan to Austrian club Rapid Vienna to aid in his development. The Brazilian quickly established himself as the team’s first-choice centre forward, appearing in excess of 70 competitive fixtures, with close to 30 goals and assists to his name. He returned to TSG Hoffenheim ahead of the 2018/19 Bundesliga campaign; during the season the Brazilian hitman featured in 33 competitive games and scored 11 goals, including a hat-trick in a 6-1 victory over FC Kaiserslautern in the DFB Pokal. On 23 July 2019, Premier League club Newcastle United secured the services of the South American goalscorer on a six year deal, lashing out a club-record fee of over £40 million. He made his debut on 11 August, as The Magpies fell to a 1-0 defeat to Arsenal.
