Leicester City join race for Arsenal target Miguel Almiron

Leicester City join race for Arsenal target Miguel Almiron

After a poor start to the season, Arsenal have finally hit some form and following their win over Fulham at the weekend, the Gunners have made it nine wins in a row and are two points off the top. 

In refreshing news for the Arsenal fans, new signings Matteo Guendouzi, Lucas Torreira and Sokratis Papastathopoulos have all played well while Stephan Lichsteiner and Bernd Leno have also put in some solid performances.

All of Arsenal’s signings have greatly improved the squad but one area that Arsenal failed to strengthen was on the wing, where, as it stands, Arsenal don’t have a legitimate out and out top quality winger.

Recent reports had linked the Gunners with Atlanta United winger, Miguel Almiron but according to Calciomercato, Leicester City will try to scupper Arsenal’s deal for the MLS man in January.

The Breakdown

Since joining the MLS side, Almiron has established himself as one of the better players in the league and is currently enjoying his best season in the MLS. The Paraguayan has so far scored 12 goals and created a further 13 in the league this season.

The 24-year-old is capable of playing on either wing but also through the middle as an attacking midfielder. While his stats are quite impressive, the fact that he’s playing in the MLS which in truth, isn’t a very good league means that Arsenal should be cautious with any potential move.

What is true, however, is that the potential is there and for a reported £15 million, Arsenal wouldn’t exactly be spending a lot of money on a player that could turn out to be a solid addition to the squad.

What do you think Arsenal fans?
