Almiron to Arsenal

Miguel Almiron to Arsenal: The President of Atlanta United has told Arsenal to triple the offer for Miguel Almiron.

Arsenal are in red-hot form at the moment. Unai Emery’s side is enjoying a great run in form as the team is currently on a 9-match winning streak across all competitions. Unai Emery’s side is fourth in the Premier League, level on points with city rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

Arsenal also cruised to the next round of the Carabao Cup, after defeating the lower-league side Brentford. Unai Emery’s side then defeated the high-flying Watford and Fulham last weekend.

In their Europa League match against Qarabag, Arsenal comfortably extended their winning run to eight games in all competitions. Arsenal beat Qarabag 3-0, with goals from Sokratis, Emile Smith-Rowe and Mateo Guendouzi secured another three points for the Gunners.

Apart from their on-field performances, Arsenal is also taking positive steps in their off-the-field activities in the transfer market. The Gunners are reportedly interested in signing Ever Banega to replace Aaron Ramsey, but gain a major boost for the winter transfer window in case of Miguel Almiron.

However, reports now emerge that Atlanta United’s president wants triple the amount.

Miguel Almiron to Arsenal:

The Atlanta United attacking midfielder has scored 12 goals and assisted 13 in 33 matches in the current season for the MLS side. According to FOX USA, Arsenal had set its eye on the player, and a bid in the region of €11m was in place for the player.

However, reports now emerge that the hierarchy of Atlanta United wants triple the amount for the player.

“So there were two clues as to why that was total nonsense: One was Eagles, not Eales,” said Darren Eagles, the Atlanta President, quoting the earlier report.

“And the other was the suggestion of £11 million because it would have to take at least triple that for me to even get out of bed and think about any bids for Almiron.

What next?

Arsenal is in the market for the replacement of Aaron Ramsey, and Almiron was pinned to be an able buy for the Gunners. However, the statement from Atlanta’s president is bound to increase worries among the Arsenal camp.
