Almirón played for the Paraguay under-20 national team in the 2013 South American Youth Football Championship in Argentina, and was highly involved as his team finished second to Colombia. Later that year, he was called up for the 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Turkey, where Paraguay reached the last 16.
In August 2015, Almirón signed for Club Atlético Lanús in the Argentine Primera División. Introduced slowly in his first season by Lanús manager Guillermo Barros Schelotto, Almirón came to the forefront the next season in the shortened 2016 Argentine Primera División under Jorge Almirón. Playing as an advanced central midfielder, Almirón was pivotal in Lanús' 2016 Argentine Primera División title win, scoring key goals against local rivals Banfield in the Clásico del Sur, and later in the final against San Lorenzo. A few months later, in August 2016, Almirón set-up the only goal in Lanús' Copa Bicentenario victory over Racing.
On 5 September 2015, Almirón made his senior international debut in a 3–2 friendly loss away to Chile, playing the final nine minutes in place of Jonathan Fabbro. Manager Ramón Díaz called him up the following May for the Copa América Centenario in the United States, where he started two matches in a group-stage exit.
On 5 December 2016, Almirón signed with the new Major League Soccer expansion team Atlanta United. He joined as a "Young Designated Player" and Atlanta paid a transfer fee of around $8 million to Lanús.
In April 2018, Almirón was named MLS Player of the Month for his five goals and two assists as Atlanta went unbeaten with three wins and a draw. With 12 goals and 14 assists, he was again named in the MLS Best XI, alongside teammate Josef Martínez. Atlanta won MLS Cup 2018 against the Portland Timbers in only their second season of existence, and Almirón was named in the Team of the 2018 MLS Cup Playoffs.
On 31 January 2019, Almirón joined Newcastle United for an undisclosed fee on a five-and-a-half year deal. The transfer fee is believed to be around £21 million, at the time, a club record fee, and a record for an MLS player.
During a match against Southampton on 20 April, he was tackled by Oriol Romeu and suffered a hamstring injury that ruled him out for the rest of the season. Almirón struggled to score in his first months with Newcastle, but helped his side to avoid relegation. After registering a total of 40 shots with no goals, he scored his first Premier League goal on 21 December 2019 in a 1–0 victory over Crystal Palace.His second goal came in the FA Cup on January 4th away at Rochdale in an eventual 1-1 draw. This was followed by his second Premier League goal coming away at WolverHampton Wanderers that ended at 1-1. His FA Cup form continued, scoring in the Rochdale replay at home, scoring one of Newcastle's four goals. On March 3rd, Almirón scored his first brace, in an eventual 3-2 away FA Cup win at West Brom. After the suspension of the 2020 season, Almirón was Newcastle's top scorer in all competitions. After the season was officially ended, he remained top scorer after two more goals against A.F.C. Bournemouth and West Ham United F.C..
In March 2019, in a friendly against Mexico at Levi's Stadium, Almirón came on as a substitute. Seven minutes later, he received a straight red card for a foul on José Juan Vázquez in which he dragged his studs down the back of the opponent's leg. On 10 October the same year, he was sent off for diving in a 1–0 friendly loss to Serbia.
Currently, Miguel Almirón is 27 years, 11 months and 15 days old. Miguel Almirón will celebrate 28th birthday on a Thursday 10th of February 2022.
