The transfer window for all of Europe’s big five leagues is closed, but that doesn’t stop Transfer Talk from rummaging around about who will be moving where come January.

Gunners target Paraguay striker Almiron

Arsenal’s attack is looking pretty formidable after their five-goal show at Fulham, but the Mirror reports that coach Unai Emery is poised to strengthen it further.

It says the Gunners boss “is set to land Paraguay striker Miguel Almiron from Atlanta United, for whom Almiron has scored 12 goals this year, in January.”

Almiron has previously said his “objective has always been to go to Europe” and hailed the Premier League for what he called its “beautiful and competitive style of soccer.”

Meanwhile, reports that Aaron Ramsey, whose fine goal illuminated the thumping win at Craven Cottage, could be replaced by Porto captain Hector Herrera are gathering pace.

Ramsey appears all but certain to move after contract talks broke down, and the Sun says that although the Gunners are lining up a move for Herrera, they could face competition from Real Madrid whose coach Julen Lopetegui worked with him in Portugal.

The Mexico international’s contract runs out next summer, meaning he could move for “a cut-price fee” after Christmas or negotiate a pre-contract agreement to move come the end of the season.
