Arsenal linked with a move for Paraguayan international 0

Posted on October 07, 2018 by David Nugent

According to the Daily Star, Arsenal have agreed a fee of around £11million with MLS outfit Atlanta United for attacking midfielder Miguel Almiron. The report suggests the 24-year-old will join the Gunners in the January transfer window.

Almiron only joined Atlanta in December of last year from Argentinian club Lanus. However, he has made a big impression in the USA top-flight. In fact, Arsenal are not the only team linked with a move for Almiron, as West Ham, Newcastle and Italian giants Inter are also reported to be showing an interest in the Paraguayan.

Arsenal to sign Miguel Almiron from Atlanta? 0

A number of media outlets report that Miguel Almiron from Atlanta United is Arsenal-bound in January. Apparantly, manager Darren Eales spoke to FOX Deportes USA and revealed that Almiron’s future has already been decided. He would move to England in the ‘European winter market’.

The reports mention the figure of £11million, which is definitely a reasonable price for a decent player.

Almiron is an attacking midfielder, most comfortable when playing through the middle but he is quite capable of performing well on either flank if called upon. He started his career with Cerro Porteno  in his homeland of Paraguay. After three seasons, he moved to Argentina to play for Lanus, and he arrived to Atlanta in December 2016, and has so far made 57 appearances and scored 18 goals in all competition for the MLS club.

Newcastle United and AC Milan have both been credited with Arsenal target Miguel Almiron, who is widely expected to leave Atlanta United after a breakthrough season in the MLS.

The 23-year-old Paraguay international made an instant impression in the American football in his very first season in the MLS.

Almiron joined Atlanta United in a Young Designated Player deal said to be worth around $8 million from Lanus and went on to rake up nine goals and 14 assists in 30 appearances for his team.

For the first half of last season German playmaker Mesut Ozil’s form was outstanding. His form dipped in the second half of the campaign, but he still managed to register an impressive 19 assists and six goals in the Premier League for the season.

The start to Ozil’s season was delayed due to an extended break after Euro 2016, but he scored in his first start of the campaign last time out against Watford.
