Augustin Almendra’s agent has denied reports of an imminent transfer to Napoli. “Boca Juniors won’t sell him in January.”
Sportitalia had claimed on Saturday that a deal was practically done for the 18-year-old midfielder, worth in the region of €10m.
Tuttonapoli contacted agent Adrian Ruoco and he had a very different take on the situation.
“There’s nothing concrete about it. Boca, as of now, do not want to sell. As far as I know, this is just newspaper gossip.
“Nobody has called me. Almendra will not leave Boca in January and we haven’t been in contact with any other club.”
The player has been compared to Juan Roman Riquelme in Argentina.
