Report: Five Premier League teams, including West Ham and West Brom, chasing Argentine international Federico Mancuello

Argentina Supporters

Manchester City, Newcastle United, Tottenham Hotspur, West Brom and West Ham are all interested in the player.

Five Premier League clubs are said to be keen on the signature of Argentine midfielder Federico Mancuello, according to reports in Italy.

The playmaker is currently with Independiente but has recently caught the eye for the Argentine national team. The 26-year-old made his Albiceleste debut in March and scored a stunning free-kick against El Salvador to introduce himself to the Argentine fold in style.

Calciomercato are reporting in an exclusive that Serie A sides Palermo and Sampdoria are keen. But they also have information which suggests that Manchester City, Newcastle United, Tottenham Hotspur, West Brom and West Ham are also being touted as potential candidates.

Mancuello would of course find friends at each club.

City have international team-mates such as former Independiente youth team-mate Sergio Aguero, Pablo Zabaleta and Martin Demichelis.

Newcastle have Fabricio Coloccini whilst Tottenham have Erik Lamela and are managed by an Argentine in Mauricio Pochettino.

West Brom meanwhile have an Argentine in Claudio Yacob whilst West Ham recently added Manuel Lanzini to Mauro Zarate at Upton Park.

Any of these teams would be getting a gem in the signature of Mancuello but must also know that there is plenty of competition for his signature.
