Atlanta United’s Miguel Almirón is expected to sign for Arsenal during the January transfer window.

According to reports, manager Darren Eagles has confirmed to FOX Deportes USA that the player is Premier League bound.

Almirón’s future is already decided and will go to England in the European winter market.

Almirón, who can play on either flank or through the middle, has been one of the star performers in the MLS recently and has attracted plenty of European interest in the past.

The 24-year-old is now expected to complete a move to the Premier League in the new year.

A deal will reportedly cost Arsenal around £11.5 million as Unai Emery’s side begins to take shape.

The report claims that the Gunners tried to sign the player during the summer but their efforts were unsuccessful.

Atlanta are already reportedly preparing for Almirón’s exit and have a replacement lined up.

Almirón joined Atlanta as one of their big-name signings from Argentinian side Lanus back in 2017.
