According to Paraguayan football commentator Luis Enrique Perez, Miguel Almiron is drawing interest from both Arsenal and Inter Milan.
This news comes via the broadcaster’s Twitter page.

His tweet roughly translates to:
Miguel Almiron of GRAN management in English football and a member of the Paraguayan National Team is interesting both England’s Arsenal and Italy’s Inter Milan.
While Enrique Perez is a compatriot of Almiron, this is not being reported by any other outlets that we can find. So we’re not sure where he’s getting his information.
We would expect there to be some interest in Miguel this summer after his recent displays for Newcastle. However, just like with Allan Saint-Maximin, Newcastle can hold out for an exorbitant fee for the popular Paraguayan.
Miguel joined Newcastle last January from Atlanta United and signed a five-and-a-half-year deal to 2024. He started brightly playing on the left before injuring his hamstring and missing the final three games of the season.
Almiron struggled to begin with under Steve Bruce, who had the 26-year-old on the right-wing for much of this season. It took Miguel until his 27th game in a Newcastle shirt to score his first goal in December against Crystal Palace.
However, since then he’s scored six times in all competitions to overtake Jonjo Shelvey as the club’s leader. Miguel has come to life playing in his preferred number 10 role over the past few matches.
We can’t see Almiron leaving this summer barring a blockbuster fee being offered. Though he is likely to attract attention from some top clubs.
