The 28-year-old Argentina international is expected to leave Real Zaragoza this summer following their relegation from La Liga.

And Newcastle have enquired about his availability, according to representative Gustavo Muscardi.

"Newcastle have asked about Aimar's situation - that is certain," Muscardi told The Sunday Sun.

"There has still not been any formal offer for us and Zaragoza to study, but the Premier League would be perfect for him, and I want to speak with Newcastle to take things forward."
