Miguel Almiron expert Roberto Rojas has claimed before Newcastle’s match against Everton that a deal for the attacking midfielder is done and it will be a loan with an option to buy at the end of the season for £15 million.
“There are a few things left to be done but probably will join in the winter transfer window.” – says Roberto Rojas.
Miguel Almiron is, of course, the attacking midfielder who is understood to be the number one target of Rafa Benitez.
The Paraguay international plays for Atlanta United in the MLS but the 24-year-old can be used as a winger on either side or a second striker.
As for Roberto Rojas’ credibility, he is the expert on the player and has been quoted in tons of stories. He has been covering South American football for years, specifically focusing on Paraguayan players such as Miguel Almiron.
Arsenal were linked with the South American midfielder on multiple occasions, but it appears that Newcastle have won the race for his services.
With Aaron Ramsey set to leave Emirates in the summer Miguel Almiron was perceived as his direct replacement, but it appears that Premier League rivals stroke the deal.
