"We not only shattered the league transfer fee record, but gave proof of concept for our original club model of signing top young players and giving them a chance to thrive and develop".

Almiron, 24, is an attacking midfielder who plays in MLS for Atlanta United and has 12 caps for Paraguay.

Almiron, 24, has been a target of the Premier League club and the sources say the terms of the deal are almost agreed, while adding it's not over the line yet.

"I think it is a great responsibility, something lovely for me, and I will try to offer the best I can to repay the trust the club put in me".
