Paredes closes on Roma switch


Much sought after Leandro Paredes could be joining Roma

Boca youngster, Leandro Paredes looks set to join Italian side Roma on loan according to reports. Despite being one of Boca Juniors’ prized assets and a potential successor to Juan Roman Riquelme, Roma look to have stolen a march on a host of rival clubs to secure the 19-year old.

Roma have been strongly linked with Paredes for months and will be hoping that any move will be as successful as his predecessor, Erik Lamela. Lamela flourished in Rome before sealing a huge money move to Tottenham.

It is understood that Paredes has agreed the deal with Roma but there are still some details to agree upon with Boca.

The details of the deal are a little unclear at present as Roma do not have any more places for non-EU players and so another move to an Italian side is possible.

Beating the likes of Juventus, Real Madrid and Arsenal to his signature is a real coup and if Paredes progresses as many in Argentina expect, Roma will have a real talent on their hands.

  1. Its a shame he will probably leave as I’d quite liked to have seen more of him in a Boca shirt before moving to Europe however I hope he does very well for Roma.

    • Agreed Scott. I would have liked to see Boca using him more already instead of Riquelme but I suppose it’s not really an option to leave him out. Anyway, it will be interesting to see how Paredes progresses now

      • Indeed. Btw sorry I should have introduced myself. I just found your site today and I’ve been a keen follower of Boca for a couple of years now so I look forward to reading more of your articles!
