CalcioMercato.com reported on Saturday that Inter Milan are “closely monitoring” the Paraguayan international, who could be worth as much as €15-20 million to the Serie A giants.
The website also reported that English Premier League club Arsenal are interested in the 23-year-old attacking midfielder.
Almiron transferred from Argentine club Lanus and signed a Designated Player deal with Atlanta last December. He’s been excellent for the Five Stripes, playing a leading role in their stellar expansion season with nine goals and 13 assists in 29 regular season appearances.
Almiron has missed Atlanta’s last three games due to a hamstring injury suffered on Sept. 24 against the Montreal Impact. The club, who are currently in third in the East and have already clinched a berth in the Audi 2017 MLS Cup Playoffs, are targeting a potential return for next Sunday’s match at the New York Red Bulls.
