Rafa Benitez stated that Miguel Almiron is mentally ready to handle the Premier League, but will have to adjust to its physicality.

“Mentally he’s ready. He wants to play. In training he’s very dynamic and quick, always involved, but he has to cope with the physicality of the Premier League. I think he can do that," said Benitez.

Benitez added that Almiron gives his side qualities they don't have on their roster.

“We know he needs to adapt but he has the pace, the runs and the ability. We will see if he is strong enough to do the same things he was doing in the MLSon the ball and without the ball. He’s different to the players we have, his game is running between the lines and behind the defenders, scoring goals and making passes.”
