2 Premier League Giants 'Closely Monitoring' In-form Newcastle United Attacker Miguel Almiron

Premier League duo Arsenal and Manchester United are closely monitoring Newcastle United attacker Miguel Almiron, as per Fichajes.

Almiron, 28, is a man in form, having scored eight goals and contributed an assist in 16 appearances across competitions.

It is becoming somewhat of a breakout season for the Paraguayan, who joined Newcastle from Atlanta United in 2019 for £21 million.

As Almiron continues to impress this season, potential suitors are taking an interest.

The prior report claims that Erik ten Hag's Manchester United and Mikel Arteta's Arsenal closely follow his situation.

The Red Devils are undergoing a rebuild under Ten Hag and signed six players during the summer transfer window.

That includes Ajax forward Antony, who bagged three goals in three consecutive Premier League appearances to start his United career.

However, goals have been a problem for Ten Hag's side, with the Red Devils scoring just 18 goals so far in the league - the lowest of any team in the top six.

Meanwhile, Arsenal is in red-hot form and sits at the top of the Premier League with 12 wins from 14 games.

Arteta's side boasts real firepower in the trio of Gabriel Martinelli, Gabriel Jesus, and Bukayo Saka.

However, many have argued that the Gunners lack strength in depth, with Marquinhos, 19, Eddie Nketiah, 23, and Reiss Nelson, 22, as options off the bench.

Arsenal and Manchester United are not the only sides interested in Almiron.

La Liga giants Atletico Madrid are also keeping tabs on the Paraguayan attacker and will make a move if he does not extend his contract, which expires in 2024.

Almiron is valued by Transfermarkt at £17.5 million.
