Everton interested in signing Miguel Almiron

Everton need to make big changes and improvements at Goodison Park to ensure they don’t find themselves in another Premier League relegation battle next season and now a new name has been linked with a move to the club this summer.

What’s the latest?

According to NBC Sports journalist Roberto Rojas, Everton are interested in signing Newcastle United’s Miguel Almiron.

Rojas tweeted: “Sources tell me that Miguel Almiron is highly praised by Eddie Howe & the NUFC brass but would also like to play a huge part at the club next season.

“Everton, Fulham, Sevilla & Napoli are among the clubs interested in the Paraguay international should a transfer be needed.”

Supporters will be delighted

The fact that the club are identifying players to bring in to improve the squad will surely delight supporters, especially after such a disappointing season. The prospect of fresh players with fresh perspectives being brought into the team is promising for the Toffees.

The versatile Paraguayan has been deployed in a number of positions at St James’ Park but has found his most effective position under Eddie Howe in the attacking midfield role this season.

Everton have not played in Europe since the 2017/18 Europa League. But who did they last face in the competition?

According to SofaScore, Almiron has scored one goal and created one big chance, making 1.6 tackles and taking 1.1 shots on average per game, whilst winning the majority of his duels (51%) and proving successful in the majority of his dribbles (68%).

That’s evidence that he is more than capable of getting stuck in and imposing himself on opponents to get into good attacking positions.

With Donny van de Beek returning to Manchester United following his loan spell at Goodison Park and Allan and Andre Gomes reportedly set to be offered out this summer, there is a potential opportunity for Almiron to make the move to Merseyside and have the opportunity to make an instant impact in the side.

Should Everton sign Almiron?

Ultimately, Lampard will be wanting to get his transfer business wrapped up quickly so he can get his team ready for next season and will need to act fast if Almiron becomes an option with so many other clubs reportedly interested in the Magpies midfielder too.
