Miguel Almiron: Keen on move to Arsenal

Arsenal did make an approach for Miguel Almiron, but the Lanus midfielder’s agent says the move is “one for the future”.

The 22-year-old has emerged as a target for the Gunners since it was revealed Jack Wilshere would be leaving the club on loan for the season.

Almiron, a Paraguay international, plies his trade in Argentina with Buenos Aires-based club Lanus, who received an approach from Arsenal, but their interest was never firmed up with an immediate bid.

The player’s agent, Daniel Campos, told Sport Witness: “Actually there was an approach, but it didn’t go any further.

“I see it more for the future.”

The agent confirmed that Almiron would relish a move to north London, adding that Lanus would expect around £8.5million for their midfielder

“That’s up to Lanus. But around €10 million,” Campos said. “No doubt he’d be delighted to play in the Premier League and for Arsenal.”
