Alejandro Martin Roncoroni, secretary of Argentine outfit Argentinos Juniors, was interviewed by calciomercato.com and revealed that Roma are interested in their highly rated 19 year old attacker Nicolás González. These are his words:
Was been a meeting between you and Roma this afternoon, is it true the interest is for Nicolás González?
Yes, I can confirm that we talked about the boy with Roma. It was a direct request, we have tried to add another two youngsters who grew up in our youth sector and we have been very receptive to the directors of Roma.
He has 4 goals in 7 matches this year, what type of player is he?
It should be noted that he has scored these in the Primera Division, the top league in Argentina. He is very strong and technical, last year he was promoted to the first team and played played as a right winger, this year we decided to move him into the middle but he can play all the roles in attack.
Are there the conditions to negotiate? How much is the boy’s price for Argentinos Juniors?
Roma are definitely pleased with him and like him a lot, though, we’ll have to talk about why they haven’t made an official offer. For us, he is worth at least €10-€12 million, we won’t sell him for less and Roma know that.
