Newcastle United are expected to add to their squad this summer, but they could also see exits before the deadline.

Newcastle United star Miguel Almiron has attracted interest as the summer window looms.

The Magpies have been linked with signings aplenty this summer, and they have spent their fair share already.

But they have been smart up to this point, and they are well aware they need to balance to books before they look to splash out big amounts.

Part of that process involves commissioning exits, and there has been interest in the likes of Allan Saint-Maximin.

Another player who could leave is forward Almiron, who has scored 10 goals in 113 Premier League appearances since arriving from Atlanta United in 2019.

Newcastle paid a club record - at the time - £21million to secure Almiron, but they could now be set to cash in.

According to Ed Aarons, Everton, who have had a disappointing start to the season, are now eyeing a deal for the Paraguay international.

It’s claimed Newcastle could welcome interest for the 28-year-old, but they are only willing to do a permanent deal this summer, not interested in a loan agreement.

In the meantime, Almiron is playing a key role for Newcastle, scoring the Magpies’ first in their 3-3 draw with Manchester City over the weekend.

Eddie Howe said after that performance: ‘I’m very pleased to see Almiron score. He was excellent and his pre-season was good. A fitting reward for him.

“You need performances but you need the result at the end of the day so I’m pleased for the players we got something today.”

With that in mind, it’s a little surprising to see reports the Magpies will allow an exit, but it’s a similar case with Allan.

It may well be a case of Newcastle believing the money could be more important as they look to make significant additions while staying compliant with Financial Fair Play rules.

Almiron has a £60million release clause in his contract, but it’s unlikely Newcastle could realistically ask for that fee.
