There’s news today in Italian outlet Calciomercato that Newcastle are interested in signing 23-year-old Paraguayan International Miguel Almiron.
Miguel is said to be the best young player with the best future in Paraguay and has so far played 10 times for his country.
He signed a year ago for MLS side Atlanta United and has been in good form in the American league
But Arsenal are also keen to sign the midfielder who can play in the number 10 position – a position that Rafa wants to strengthen in January.
The youngster will not be a cheap buy for Newcastle with the fee said to be around £15M.
He was outstanding for Paraguay in the 2013 FIFA U20 World Cup when Paraguay finished second in qualifying to Columbia.
Miguel Almiron – playing for Atlanta
He made his full international debut for Paraguay back in September 2015 and has represented the full national side in both the Copa America Centenario and the 2018 World Cup qualifying games.
One of the positions Rafa is trying to strengthen is the number 10 position so we can be a bigger threat up front.
That has been a weakness in the side for at least a couple of years.
The 23-year-old has played 32 times for Atlanta with 9 goals and 8 assists.
