Atlanta United ace Miguel Almiron is reportedly the subject of interest from Premier League giants Arsenal.
The 24-year-old has been in impressive form for the MLS outfit in recent seasons. He scored 12 goals and provided 13 assists in 31 appearances during the 2018 campaign.
The Paraguay international have been identified by the Gunners’ head of recruitment, Sven Mislintat, who has a reputation for finding brightest young talents in the game.
The Atlanta attacking-midfielder could be the next top prospect that Mislintat brings to the north London this January.
Whilst many Arsenal supporters won’t know much about the Atlanta United man, many have still shown their excitement over his potential arrival in the mid-season.
He’s stood out in MLS the last couple of seasons. Very talented, but I’d be a bit concerned about the step up. Also, he’s a creative midfielder, which we seem to already have plenty of. But in terms of talent, especially for his age, he’s pretty impressive.

So. Excited. He’s a joy to watch.

He is a left winger, that can play centrally, with his electric pace he can provide width and creativity at the same time. He would be an amazing addition

Watched him few times in MLS and always wondered why he wasn’t playing in Europe. Good prospect. 👍🏾

If it’s true it’s a huge loss for #ATLUTD but it was always going to happen – Almirón moving to Europe. I’m ecstatic it’s #Arsenal he’s a hard worker and I would love to see him wearing the AFC shirt although I’d hate to see him leave the ATL

Long term Rambo replacement?
