Newcastle winger Miguel Almiron wanted by Everton and Fulham in transfer battle for Paraguay star

EVERTON and Fulham are both eyeing up Newcastle winger Miguel Almiron.

The Paraguayan started eight of Toon’s final 11 games of the season but boss Eddie Howe warned there could be shock departures.

Allan Saint-Maximin and injured Ryan Fraser are ahead of Almiron in the pecking order, whose sale would boost the transfer kitty.

Howe also hinted that some who have barely played under him could stay on Tyneside.

Left-back Jamal Lewis has not played since December because of a groin injury and was omitted from Newcastle’s 25-man squad in February but is set for a chance to shine pre-season.

The Mags boss said: “There are players here who have not featured too much under me so far who could stay and vice-versa there could be others going.”

Howe claimed that there will be no rest for Toon’s management team and the preparation for next season will begin immediately.

He added: “I just joked with someone that the planning starts on the coach back.

“I had a rethink, and said: ‘that can wait until tomorrow!’.

“It starts straight away. You have to, the Premier League moves so quickly, and the competition’s so strong, that you have to try and be ahead of the game.

“We’ll try and be sensible about what we do this summer. It’s a big time for us.

“I think I said when first came in that, for me, appointing a sporting director is a matter of urgency for the club, because we need those structures that help the club improve and we have a lot of improving to do behind the scenes to get to be the club we want to be.

“In the meantime, I’m more than capable of doing certain things, and the transfer window [in January], I think the outcome has been very successful.

“I enjoyed the process of how we got to that outcome. Everyone did a really, really good job, so I’m more than happy to do that again.”

Meanwhile, Jack Grealish has been labelled a “moron” by talkSPORT’s Simon Jordan over singling out Almiron for a joke during title trophy celebrations.
