According to reports, Argentine teenage sensation, Maxi Romero, has agreed personal terms with Arsenal. But there’s a condition.
The Argentine starlet will remain at Velez Starfield for two more years to continue his development before moving to the England.
Arsenal tried to sign the 17-year old striker last summer but a knee injury the wonder kid suffered scuppered the deal. Now we have revived that earlier interest.
Reports credited to the Metro state that the Gunners are closing in on securing a deal for the youngster and, going by his agent Rolando Zarate’s statement, an offer has been made and a deal could possibly be completed soon.
Romero’s agent told Todo Mercato Web last month, “Maxi has huge potential.”
“I went to London to talk about Arsenal’s offer, and then took it back to [Velez president] Raul Gamez. Arsenal agreed to our main terms: that the player remains at Velez for two more years.
“Maxi is going to complete his apprenticeship at a great club like
Velez. I met with Arsene Wenger twice in London. I negotiated with him and then with his assistants.”
“They heard about Maxi Romero through their scouts in America. He was the player who most impressed them.”
The youngster reportedly costs €6 million. He is obviously a signing for the future as Arsene Wenger will try make a world class striker out of him.
The Argentine international is following in the footsteps of legends like Diego Maradona and Radamel Falcao and Arsene Wenger won’t regret signing the youngster.
