Almiron, signed by Newcastle United from Atlanta United in January last year, scored his seventh goal of the season in Wednesday night’s 4-1 Premier League win over Bournemouth.

And Daniel Campos, Almiron’s representative, has spoken about interest from Diego Simeone’s side in the 26-year-old midfielder, who, he adds, has a “high” release clause at St James’s Park.

"We’re in contact with the people of Atletico, with the director, but nothing official.” said Campos. “Even before his departure for Newcastle (from Atlanta), he was already on the radar at the club. It doesn’t shock me that Miguel’s in the interest of various big teams. We have to see if Newcastle want to negotiate a departure. Miguel's release clause is high. Miguel’s a player that fits perfectly in Simeone’s system.”
