Argentina striker Pratto mulls European move: Agent

Rio de Janeiro, Jan 11 (IANS) Argentine international striker Lucas Pratto is being pursued by several European clubs and could leave Brazil’s Atletico Mineiro during the January transfer window, his agent has said.

The comments come less than a month after local media reported that the 28-year-old is also the target of several clubs in China, reports Xinhua news agency.

“We are talking with clubs in Italy, Spain and England,” Pratto’s agent, Gustavo Goni, was quoted as saying by ESPN Brasil on Tuesday.

Atletico have set a price tag of 15 million euros for Pratto, whose suitors include West Ham United, Sevilla and Valencia, the report said.

Capped four times for Argentina’s national team, Pratto has been one of the most prolific scorers in Brazilian football in the past two years with 41 goals in 100 matches for Atletico Mineiro.
