Newcastle sets off to break their record transfer fee from 2005. The club bought Michael Owen back in the day for £16m, a price that they haven’t come close to for 14 years.
Almiron caught Newcastles attention with his performance in the MLS. He has scored 21 goals in 62 league appearances in his career, having previously played for Cerro Porteno in his home country and Argentina’s Lanus. His move to the Premier League is a great step for Almiron’s career.
