Tigre attacker Ruben Botta says he is excited by his imminent move to Inter Milan.
Botta is set to make a summer switch to San Siro and the Argentine cannot wait to line up alongside some of his idols.
“I will have the opportunity to be in a team with (Javier) Zanetti, (Esteban) Cambiasso, (Diego) Milito,” Botta told the Corriere dello Sport.
“It will be a source of pride and honour for me to wear the shirt of Inter, one of the biggest clubs in the world.
“Captain Zanetti is an example for any player to follow, while the Nerazzurri are one of the 10 biggest clubs in the world and after having said this, there is no need to say more.”
Some pundits have compared Botta with Paris Saint-Germain winger Ezequiel Lavezzi but he feels he is more similar to another of his compatriots.
“‘Pocho’ is a great player but he relies heavily on his physical strength and his speed,” Botta explained. “In contrast, I count on my technique and skill.
“In Argentina, many journalists equate my style to that of Angel Di Maria and, in fact, I think he and I have a lot in common.”
Botta, 23, is a product of the Boca Juniors youth system but ended up joining Tigre as a teenager.
