Arsene Wenger confirmed that he was close to sealing deals to sign Lucas Perez and Shkodran Mustafi at the weekend, and they are now reported to be close to signing Lanus midfielder Miguel Almiron also.
The transfer window will close at 11PM on Wednesday evening, and it could be another busy one for our club, as we look to complete three deals between now and then.
Shkodran Mustafi and Lucas Perez will hopefully be announced before Wednesday, with formalities having begun before the weekend, and Paraguayan journalist Ruben Dario Da Rosa has now revealed that Arsenal are also close to signing Almiron also.
Miguel Almiron muy cerca del Arsenal de Inglaterra, por 9.4 millones de Euros.Cerro pendiente,tiene el 20% de los derechos económicos

Which roughly translates as ‘Miguel Almiron is very close to England’s Arsenal, for €9.4 Million’. My understanding of the latter part of the post is that 20% of the fee would belong to somebody outside the club…
We have seen Tomas Rosicky, Mikel Arteta and Mathieu Flamini leave the club since the end of last season, and Granit Xhaka is the only replacement who has so far come in to cover for their exits, and Almiron could now be set to join our star-studded midfield.
The exciting youngster will be somewhat of an unknown to the majority of you, but some kind people have created a Youtube video of his impressive skills, goals and creative vision.
Could he be a future star for our club? Or do you think he could earn a role for us on his prospective arrival?
