Paraguayan journalist Roberto Rojas reports that Miguel Almiron looks set to leave Newcastle this summer, believing there’s “no way” he stays beyond this season.
The 28-year-old was signed back in January 2019 for around £20 million – a club record fee at the time – but has yet to live up to the expectation that came with his arrival from the MLS.
Following his transfer, Almiron had injected a burst of pace and energy into the side that helped to lift the fans and offer some hope within games – his introduction against Huddersfield was one of the more exciting debuts in recent memory.
However, with just eight goals in 102 appearances, the Paraguayan has stagnated and his poor form has seen him left out of the squad on multiple occasions – the likes of Ryan Fraser and Jacob Murphy being preferred options.
Here’s what NCB Sports reporter Roberto Rojas had to say about his future on Tyneside:
With just nine games left in the season, either the Paraguayan must dramatically improve his performances – if given another chance – or a move elsewhere is looking very likely given the quality of players the owners will be hoping to bring in.
