Newcastle fans react to January move for Almiron

Loads of Newcastle fans have been reacting to some promising transfer links, and let’s just say they need to see it to believe it.

According to Alan Nixon, Newcastle are in the race to sign MLS superstar Miguel Almiron.

Almiron has been heavily linked with a move to Arsenal after an incredible season for Atlanta United, but Nixon claims the Magpies will make a play for him in January.

The 24 year-old, who plays as a number ten, has 12 goals and 11 assists in 32 MLS games, end product that Newcastle’s crop of forwards can only dream of.

The Toon Army have grown increasingly frustrated with the performances of their current number ten, Ayoze Perez, and Almiron is far faster, more direct and more clinical.

Of course, any transfer link is met with huge trepidation around Tyneside, as fans have just come to expect disappointing from Mike Ashley.

The report from Nixon says there is money for Rafael Benitez to spend in January, but fans don’t seem too optimistic.
