Jan 09, 2021
Buenos Aires (Argentina), January 9: Argentina international defender Gonzalo Montiel could join Roma on a free transfer in the European summer, according to press reports in the South American country.
The 24-year-old's contract with River Plate expires in June and his agent Pablo Sabbag has begun listening to offers from clubs in Europe, according to the Ole news outlet.
It added that Roma is the frontrunner to sign the right-back when the current European season ends in June, without ruling out a move during the current winter transfer window.
Montiel has made 101 appearances for River Plate since being promoted from the Buenos Aires club's youth academy in 2016. He has been capped six times for Argentina's national team.
Roma currently has two Argentinians in their squad: defender Federico Fazio and midfielder Javier Pastore.
