AS Roma are in pole position to sign Argentine midfielder Leandro Paredes from Boca Juniors, according to A Bola.
The Giallorossi are very attentive of the South American market, as witnessed by their purchase of Erik Lamela, who was then sold for a big profit to Tottenham.
This time Roma are set to make a move on Boca Juniors starlet Leandro Paredes, who is already earning comparisons with club legend Juan Roman Riquelme.
The Serie A side plan to add the 19-year-old to the squad in the summer, but they are already in talks with Boca Juniors chiefs as they want to close the deal before other interested sides can make concrete moves.
Leandro Paredes has made a total of 28 league appearances for los Xeneizes, scoring 5 goals in the process.
His suitors Roma currently occupy the second position in Serie A and are priced at 2/7 to achieve a top 3 finish.
