Newcastle United’s best team is now shaping up nicely.
The Magpies had been moving quite slowly in the transfer market, with takeover talk getting supporters frustrated.
But the club sprang into life with the additions of Callum Wilson, Ryan Fraser and Jamal Lewis, with Jeff Hendrick and Mark Gillespie also joining.
The additions of Wilson and Fraser in particular have been hailed, with the ex-Bournemouth pair arriving for a combined £20 million.
Newcastle’s problem since returning to the Premier League has been scoring goals, and there is hope these two players will make a huge difference.
But one man who can also make a huge difference, is a player who is now beginning to find his feet at St. James’ Park.
Miguel Almiron struggled to adapt when he first joined from Atlanta United for a reported £20 million (ESPN) but is looking much more comfortable now, and he could be a vital cog in the new-look Newcastle machine.
TBR’s View – Almiron can unlock the new signings
The Paraguay international has a proper feel for English football now and has the talent to improve productivity in the final third.
With better players around him like Wilson and Fraser, Almiron could enjoy a breakout season in 2020/21.
We saw him combine beautifully with Fraser last night against Blackburn Rovers in the EFL Cup, and one gets the feeling he’ll be providing plenty more assists this term for those around him.
Almiron can now be the man everything goes through, and Fraser and Wilson could be in for fine debut campaigns as a result.
