Reliable journalist Roberto Rojas has revealed that Everton are among a number of clubs who are now ‘interested’ in signing Miguel Almiron this summer.
The Lowdown: Out of favour
The 28-year-old has been largely out of favour at Newcastle this season, having played the full 90 minutes on just five occasions in total (Transfermarkt).
The Latest: Everton interest in Almiron
Taking to Twitter, Rojas has revealed that Everton are one of four teams who would be ‘interested’ in signing the Paraguay international, should he be made available for transfer.
The reporter stated: “Sources tell me that Miguel Almiron is highly praised by Eddie Howe & the #NUFC brass but would also like to play a huge part at the club next season.
“Everton, Fulham, Sevilla & Napoli are among the clubs interested in the Paraguay international should a transfer be needed.”
Should Everton sign Almiron?
The Verdict: Sign him
If Newcastle are willing to let Almiron go, then the Toffees could get a good deal for him, especially with only two years left on his contract at St James’ Park.
Once dubbed ‘magnificent’ by Magpies legend Alan Shearer, the Paraguay international does possess abundant technical qualities, as demonstrated by his delightful effort against Crystal Palace which won April’s Premier League Goal of the Month award.
He has ample experience of playing in the Premier League, so he should be able to settle in fairly quickly on Merseyside should he end up making the move to Frank Lampard’s side.
