Newcastle midfielder Miguel Almiron has been linked with a move to Tottenham as the London club looks to replace outgoing midfielder Christian Eriksen. Almiron has been one of the best performers for Newcastle since making his big-money move from Atlanta United in January.

The Paraguay midfielder has shown a mixture of pace and creativity which has seen him thrive in the EPL despite his small stature. Almiron ascent has been one of constant progress with the midfielder making his name at Lanus in Argentina winning the Copa America.

This led to a big move to MLS side Atlanta, his time in America coincided with the best record for the club who won the MLS Cup last season with Almiron chief creator for the club. His £24 million move to Newcastle was the biggest transfer for a Paraguay player since Roque Sante Cruz move from Blackburn to Manchester City.

Tottenham currently lack creativity in the midfield without Eriksen. Dele Allli has lost his touch in the midfield since last season. Record signing Tanguy Ndombele has endured a tough introduction to the EPL. Harry Winks offers nice tidy passing but lacks the ability to play defense splitting passes.

Sissoko is a physical wrecking bull that lacks the final product. Almiron will fit to the discipline that Pochettino places on his teams. He is similar in play to current Spurs playmaker Giovanni Lo Celso but quicker.

It is understood that Newcastle will be willing to sell for around £40 million which will be a decent profit for the club given the amount they signed him in January.

Meanwhile, Eriksen is expected to be on his way out of the club with Real Madrid and Juventus said to be likely destinations for the Dane. Tottenham will be looking to hold on until January for reinforcements as they currently endure their worst start to a season since the arrival of Pochettino five years ago.
