Man City and Chelsea vying for Paraguay hero

Premier League giants Manchester City and Chelsea are among clubs showing interest in FC Basel forward Derlis Gonzalez, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.

The 21-year-old became a real star for Paraguay after scoring from the penalty spot in regulation time, before netting the winning penalty in the shoot-out to help La Albirroja eliminate Brazil in the 2015 Copa America quarter-finals.

Gonzalez soon learned of the death of his uncle, who had suffered a heart attack while watching the game, and he is now being linked with a big club move.

Namely, Manchester City and Chelsea reportedly lead the chase for his services, while Juventus and Fiorentina are keen as well.

Despite his fragile age, the 21-year-old already has substantial experience, having made 102 appearances in Paraguay’s top flight, scoring 31 goals.

The winger was in fine form during his debut season with FC Basel, bagging 6 goals and producing 10 assists in 35 competitive outings.
