There is a difficult issue behind the deal as Romero’s agents and his club Velez Sarsfield part own and have a stake in the player
Arsene Wenger will do a £4.5m deal for Argentine wonderkid Maxi Romero – as long as they can overcome a complex ownership issue.
There is a difficult issue behind the deal as Romero’s agents and his club Velez Sarsfield part own and have a stake in the player.
Romero, 16, who has been compared to Lionel Messi and models himself on Radamel Falcao, is likely to stay in Argentina until at least December 2016.
The deal was first reported last week and Arsenal have been quick to try and tie things up before anyone else moves in with a five year contract being offered.
It is likely they will sign it off and then iron out the ownership issue before he is allowed to move to England as the Premier League have strict rules.
Velez president Raul Gamez said: “Arsenal have made a big offer for Maxi Romero. I don’t want to talk figures just yet but it’s a big offer.”
Romero’s agent Rolando Zarate said: ‘I met with Arsene Wenger twice in London. They heard about Maxi through their scouts in South America. He is the player who has most impressed him.
“Maxi has huge potential but he is going to complete apprenticeship at a great club like Velez.”
