Miguel Almiron has been linked with a move to the Saudi Pro League.

Miguel Almiron's partner has hinted at a possible move for the Newcastle United winger following increasing interest from the Saudi Pro League.

The Paraguayan is attracting serious interest from the Middle East with Al Shabab said to be leading the chase, while it is NewcastleWorld's understanding that Al Ahli, who are one of four SPL clubs owned by the Magpies' majority owners the Public Investment Fund, are also keeping an eye on the situation.

Allan Saint-Maximin joined Al Ahli from the Magpies in the summer window for around £23m.

And now Almiron's girlfriend Alexia Notto has suggested they have been unsettled by last minute plan changes.

During the break, the couple and their son returned to Paraguay and looked to have stayed while other United players returned to training this week.

"Our days in Paraguay were cut short," Alexia wrote on Instagram alongside a collection of photos. "But we enjoyed it too much."

The forward - a £21million signing from MLS outfit Atlanta United in January 2019 - turns 30 next month and isn't the only star linked with a move elsewhere. Kieran Trippier is a target for Bayern Munich, and both AC Milan & Atletico Madrid have asked about Callum Wilson's availability.

Newcastle CEO Darren Eales recently admitted the club will consider selling players in order to comply with Premier League Profitability and Sustainability Rules (PSR). Even if Almiron stays at St James' Park this month, we understand Saudi clubs are prepared to return to the table in the summer.

Since arriving on Tyneside, Almiron has made 195 appearances and scored 30 goals, over half of which (16) have come since the beginning of last season.
