According to Alan Nixon, Rafa Benitez has ‘money to spend’ in the January transfer window and is hoping to pull off the signing of MLS star Miguel Almiron.
The highly-rated Paraguayan playmaker was someone we were linked with over the summer, and his 12 goals and 13 assists in the MLS appear to have impressed NUFC scouts.
Despite his links to The Sun, Nixon was the man who broke our interest in Federico Fernandez, being the first to confirm that a deal was going ahead when we signed the Argentinian from Swansea on deadline day.
