The Gunners started the summer in dull fashion, as their only major signing was £34m Granit Xhaka prior to the European Championships in France. Fellow title contenders – especially the two Manchester sides [United and City] have splashed the cash – leading to the Arsenal faithful lambasting their boss for their side’s minimal activity in the market.
Meanwhile, Arsenal have stepped up in the past few days quickly completing deals for Shkodran Mustafi and Lucas Perez. Arséne Wenger said, after the defeat of Watford on Saturday, he was not looking forward to any further arrivals after the confirmation of the duo – but things could change.
Latest reports in Italy indicate the North Londoners are currently in negotiations with Lanus for the transfer of midfielder, Miguel Almirón.
Although, Arsenal have enough options in midfield, but at 22, Almirón could certainly be the one for the future.
Some of the Arsenal supporters have voiced their opinions regarding the rumour:
Xhaka – In [04Jeremy05] tweeted: “So there’s a Miguel Almiron rumour making the rounds……jus cuz of the links I hope he can shoot, don’t want another tippy tappy player.”
Wayne Turner_AFC [wjturner80]: “Who the hell is Miguel almiron? =| =| “
Arsenal got off to winning ways in the Premier League on Saturday as they defeated Watford 3-1 at Vicarage Road. The Gunners will hope to continue their winning run when they resume duties after next weekend’s international break.
