River Plate midfielder Ezequiel Cirigliano has admitted that he would be interested in a move to Europe, but a move to Spain to play in La Liga would be his preference, after attracting a host of international interest.
Cirigliano has been attracting interest because of his consistent form playing for River Plate in the Primera Division in Argentina. Since signing his professional contract with Plate in 2010, the 20-year-old has made 56 appearances for Los Millonarios. Cirigliano has been impressing potential suitors because of his accurate passing and tough-tackling throughout his relatively short career.
And it is Manchester City and Arsenal who have been tracking the 20-year-old closely, but it is Spain's La Liga that is thought to be Cirigliano's prefered destination.
Cirigliano has been considering a transfer after struggling to hold down a first team berth at Plate this season.
Speaking to reporters in Argentina, Cirigliano confirmed that La Liga would be the ideal move, but he would consider staying at River Plate too.
"If I had the chance to choose a place where I would play, that would be Spain. I am comfortable at River, but if I recieve an interesting proposal I would analyse it. I would like to play in the Spanish Liga," said Cirigliano.
Cirigliano also reiterated that a transfer isn't essential, but if the chance of first team football at River Plate doesn't improve, then it is something he would be interested in.
"I would like to have the chance to play more frequently and win myself a place in the team so I don't have to leave the club, but if that isn't possible, then I will have to pay attention to the transfer window," added Cirigliano.
