Almiron spent large spells of the recently concluded Premier League campaign outside of the starting eleven at Newcastle, although he became a fixture under Eddie Howe towards the end of the campaign.


The Magpies hierarchy and Howe both value the Paraguay international very highly and were delighted with the way he came to the fore during the business end of the campaign.



Having endured some frustrating spells at St. James’ Park under Howe, Almiron is keen on playing a key role for the Magpies in the forthcoming campaign.


However, should Newcastle decide to part ways with the 28-year-old, he is not short of suitors.



Newcastle’s top flight rivals Everton are interested in a summer swoop for Almiron, provided his club are open to selling him, while newly promoted Fulham also are keen on him.


Toffees boss Frank Lampard, who is keen on rebuilding his squad in the summer, will have vacant spots to fill in attack with several players leaving and could push to land Almiron if he becomes available in the summer.



In addition to Everton and the Cottagers, Almiron also has admirers abroad in the shape of La Liga giants Sevilla and Italian heavyweights Napoli.
