Arsenal Could Sign A Big MLS Star During January Transfer Window
Arsenal manager Unai Emery is looking to revitalise the Gunners squad and will no doubt want to secure Champions League qualification for next season -- a trophy along the way would probably whet his appetite, too.
Arsène Wenger's departure from the club at the end of last season left Arsenal in uncertain territory, but the former Paris Saint-Germain manager reinforced his inherited squad in the summer and is looking to bolster it once again in January.
The London club could be set to complete an £11m deal for Atlanta United star Miguel Almirón, according to the Metro.
The 24-year-old Paraguayan midfielder has made a real impact at the MLS side since his 2017 move, finding the back of the net more than 10 times and over 11 assists to his name.
Fox Deportes reports that the Gunners have been scouting the footballer and have agreed to sign him in January.
Atlanta president Darren Eales has only reinforced the idea that Almirón's future at the club is unclear, saying that a deal has already been reached with a Premier League side.
"Almirón's future is already decided and he will go to England in the European winter market," he said.
Arsenal are fifth in the Premier League after seven matches, with Emery's side winning five times and drawing twice.

Unai Emery's Arsenal are rapidly becoming difficult to beat. He's added added defensive discipline while sweeping away complacency. With Leno set for a run, Torreira installed in the middle and every player raising his game the future looks promising. So much more to come
