Potential failure of Miguel Almiron deal shows that Newcastle could be relegated

Potential failure of Miguel Almiron deal shows that Newcastle could be relegated

January could make or break Newcastle’s season. The Magpies must reinvest into the squad if they are to even have a chance of staying up in the league. 

Over the summer, the club made some excellent signings in Fabian Schar and Frederico Fernandez but going forward, Newcastle lack any real threat and have so far scored the second lowest amount of goals in the league.

Indeed, without Salomon Rondon, Newcastle don’t have any real threat going forward. The on-loan West Brom forward has only scored three goals this season as the club’s top scorer.

With that in mind, Newcastle must look to add some firepower up front and had been linked with a move for Atlanta United winger, Miguel Almiron. As reported by the Daily Star, however, the ongoing issues at Newcastle may well stop the club signing the 24-year-old.

The Breakdown

The Paraguayan was arguably the best player in the MLS as he scored 12 goals in 32 games while also registering 13 assists. He was an essential player in the side’s MLS Cup victory and such has been his impressive performances that he will likely make the move away.

With Newcastle, so poor going forward, signing Almiron would represent a player that could improve their attacking options massively.

Making the move from the MLS to the Premier League would be a huge step up for the 24-year-old but nevertheless, he’s a player Newcastle can’t afford to miss out on. If they do, it will represent yet another slip up in the Mike Ashley era.
