The 26-year-old Rosario-born player began his career in his homeland with Newell´s Old Boys before being spotted by the Udine outfit in 2001.
Almiron moved to the Turin giants in June for nine million euros, and told club website www. juventus.com: "I´ll always be grateful to Udinese. They came to see me play in Argentina and they brought me over to Italy when I wasn´t even 21. Udinese´s management team believed in me and they launched my career."
