Arsenal told to forget about signing Ozil potential replacement



Miguel Almiron

Arsenal have been hinted that they may not stand a chance in signing MLS star Miguel Almiron again because they have been overtaken by Newcastle in the bid for the player.

The North London side have been linked with the Atlanta United midfielder for the past weeks but seems to be unserious in his bid and might be losing the player who is one of the best in the United State topflight league.

A journalist Alan Nixon was the one who confirmed that Newcastle might be the leader in the race for the Paraguay player, adding that the club are still working on a befitting price to let him go.

Almiron has already indicated his interest in having a switch to the Premier League and there is no doubt that his club are willing to let him leave but for the right price.

Newcastle are currently 17 in the Premier League table and are desperate to turn the situation around in the second half of the season with manager Rafa Benitez making efforts to storm the January transfer market.

Meanwhile, the fact that the Rafa Benitez side have earned just six points in eleven games might discourage the MLS player from agreeing on a switch eventually.
