Inter & Roma Keen On Salvio
According to Rome based radio station Central Cuono Sport, Roma and Inter are to battle it out to sign Eduardo Salvio.
The Argentine international, who is currently on the books of Portuguese giants Benfica, is expected to cost between €20 and €25 million. However with just a year left on his contract both clubs could push to acquire the right winger for a lesser price.
Last season Salvio, who made two appearances for Argentina at the World Cup, played 34 times across all competitions for Benfica including five games in the Champions League. The 27-year-old former Atletico Madrid man got on the score sheet nine times and managed to come up with six assists.
It is also worth mentioning that Salvio does not have a European passport which means both Inter and Roma must seriously weigh up whether or not they want to use up one of their non-EU player quota slots on him or not which could stop them from pursuing others in a similar situation to him who may be of more benefit to each side respectively.
