Italian giants Inter Milan are set to rival Arsenal for the signature of Atlanta United playmaker Miguel Almiron.
The attacking midfielder who is very highly rated in America was recently ranked as the top player in the MLS’ list of 24 players under the age of 24.
So far this season, Almiron has nine goals and a further eight assists to his name, little wonder he is often described as the heartbeat of the Atlanta team.
With no news to report regarding any progress on a contract extension for Mesut Ozil, the German could be set to join Alexis Sanchez in departing the Emirates in one of the next two windows, Wenger is understood to be monitoring a few top talents capable of making an impact in North London.
Recent reports emanating from Italy have revealed that Wenger is interested in making a January move for the vastly creative midfielder in the New Year having been impressed by numerous scout reports.
According to Calciomercato via Daily Cannon, Almiron could soon be on the way to Europe with Arsenal and Inter Milan both interested.
The report further states that the 23-year-old is currently valued around £18million, a fee Arsene Wenger would be very comfortable with.
The Paraguayan international primarily plays as a central attacking midfielder but is also adept at playing from the wings. Almiron has 10 caps for Paraguay thus far and has been a part of their World Cup qualifying campaign.
Should Almiron arrive the Emirates in January, it would be interesting to see the impact he would have immediately. Whilst he has obviously been impressive in the MLS, the Premier League is a massive step up.
