Alvarez linked with Roma move

Alvarez, also been monitored by Arsenal, is a talented winger playing for Velez Sarsfield in Argentina.

“Ricky Alvarez is a very strong and versatile player,” Roma director of football Walter Sabatini said. “We are monitoring him, as with other players.

“You may have noticed a sort of paralysis in the transfer market, but we expect a domino effect once the first move goes through.”
