Marcos Senesi appears certain to be involved in June’s Finalissima, and Argentina hope he will turn out in the Albiceleste.
The Feyenoord defender was born in Argentina but also holds an Italian passport.
Senesi remains uncapped and is said to be a target for Italy ahead of the June international break, in which they will play Argentina as part of the Finalissima between the European Championship winners and Copa America champions.
Lionel Scaloni has moved first by including Senesi in his preliminary squad, however, named on Friday.
And Senesi could get his opportunity as Cristian Romero, also called up by Scaloni, has been ruled out for the rest of the club season with Tottenham.
“We understood in the last few days that Romero had a serious injury and has finished this season,” Spurs coach Antonio Conte said. “There are only two games to go and he has no time to recover for these two games.”
After playing Italy at Wembley on June 1, Argentina also have a friendly on June 11 against Brazil, whom they must play again in a replayed World Cup qualifier.
