Atlanta United have reportedly named asking price for Arsenal and Manchester United target Ezequiel Barco.
The 20-year-old is attracting interest from across Europe after a superb season with the MLS team, while the player has also caught the eye in Argentina’s youth teams.
The Gunners and Red Devils are believed to feature on a long list of admirers of the South American ace which also includes Inter Milan, AC Milan, AS Roma, Sporting CP, SL Benfica, LOSC Lille and Valencia.
Ezequiel, who is considered one of South America’s most exciting talents, joined Atlanta from Independiente for a reported $15 million (£11.6 million) fee in the winter of 2018 – an MLS record at the time.
And with Europe’s elite clubs ready to pounce, Atlanta are looking to make a tidy profit on the talent, who can play as a left winger, attacking midfielder or second striker.
The MLS franchise want $25 million (£19 million) for Barco, according to an Italian outlet Calciomercato.
Record has reported that Portuguese heavyweights Sporting CP are weighing up an approach for the star.
According to the publication, the Lions view the Atlanta man as a perfect replacement for star playmaker Bruno Fernandes if the club lose the Portugal international in January.
In spite of seeing his season interrupted by injuries and international commitments, Ezequiel finished the recent campaign with four goals and three assists in 15 MLS matches for Atlanta.
He helped Frank de Boer’s side to the play-offs, where the club made it all the way to the Conference Finals before they were beaten by Toronto FC.
Ezequiel also featured for Argentina at the FIFA U20 World Cup in Poland earlier this year.
