According to sources with direct knowledge of Inter Milan’s transfer strategy, Atlanta United’s Miguel Almiron no longer fits into their future plans.
Earlier this year, we reported that his potential value to the Nerazzuri hovered around €15-20 million. However, in recent months it was decided by executives not to pursue the energetic playmaking midfielder. 
He originally appeared on Inter’s radar when Javier Zainetti spotted Almiron during his playing days in South America with Paraguayan side Cerro Porteno and Argentinian club Lanus. In fact, they were even interested in signing him before Atlanta United swooped in for $13 million.
The source stressed that Inter’s lack of interest is not about performance or questions concerning his talent. Their loss of interest stems from the belief that the Paraguayan international does not fit the mold of Inter Milan’s playing style.
Interest in Almiron - whose Atlanta United were eliminated from playoff contention this past week - across Europe remains high. Though he’s recently been linked to Inter and Arsenal, it’s more likely he’ll head to a less-established European club when he leaves MLS. Whether that happens this winter, or next season, is still up in the air.
