Claudio Echeverri is the latest young talent who could be on the verge of jumping from South America to Europe.
Echeverri excelled in the quarter-final match of the U-17 World Cup against Brazil with the Argentine national team. After his hat-trick in the 3-0 win, the River Plate player has already sparked interest in the Old Continent.
According to Diario SPORT (h/t TNT Sports Argentina), three European giants already have the player in their portfolio. Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain, and Manchester City would have taken note of the 17-year-old.
However, it is necessary to mention that none of the clubs have made an offer for the attacker, who will turn 18 in January. Furthermore, it is essential to highlight that FIFA regulations establish that no footballer under 18 may emigrate abroad.
PSG is targeting young talent that can identify with the capital club. As a result, it will be interesting to see whether they pursue the latest top talent out of Argentina to add to this new-look squad.
