Newcastle United currently find themselves in a spot of bother after an appalling start to the current campaign, with Rafa Benitez’s future surrounded with doubt.
The Magpies will be desperate to ensure some consistency under the Spaniard prior to the January transfer window, with plenty of improvements required. Interestingly, it appears as if the Tyneside club are eyeing a potential addition, as according to the Sun on Sunday (28/10; page 59) (via HITC), Newcastle are interested in signing Atlanta United’s Miguel Almiron.
Newcastle have become the latest Premier League side to take an interest in Miguel Almiron ahead of the January transfer window.
Indeed, the likes of Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United are also believed to be interested.
Interestingly, the report states that Mike Ashley is ready to let Rafa Benitez spend some money in January. The Newcastle owner has apparently accepted that relegation will be on the cards if the manager is not allowed to strengthen the squad.
Miguel Almiron has established himself as one of the hottest topics in world football, with a move to the Premier League being just rewards for his efforts in the MLS.
Indeed, the South American would offer a different dynamic in midfield for the Magpies and could help cure their attacking woes in the final third.
