Scout report – Leeds United, AC Milan & Atlético Madrid target Matías Zaracho

Consistently one of the best young players in Argentina over the past three seasons, 22-year-old midfielder Matias Zaracho is understandably gaining plenty of attention from across the Atlantic.

The local lad from Avellaneda has been on Racing’s books since the age of eight and rose to prominence as a key player in La Academia’s Superliga 2018/19 triumph. Zaracho’s dynamism, crisp passing and versatility saw him earn a senior national team debut in March last year, while he was also an integral member of the Argentina U23 side that qualified for the Olympics.

In his 96 appearances for Racing, Zaracho has shown his flexibility within different tactical setups. More recently he has featured in the centre or right of the more advanced midfield three in a 4-1-3-2, thus allowing him to operate in his preferred space on the right, as demonstrated by the heatmap above.
