German side Eintracht Frankfurt are said to be very close to signing Mateo Retegui from Boca Juniors despite the interest from AC Milan and other sides, a report claims.
As has been reported on Rai (via Area Napoli), the Argentina-born striker Retegui has been a target for many Italian clubs for a short while now.
The interest grew dramatically when he was called up to the Italy squad by Roberto Mancini for the games against England and Malta. The player on loan at Tigre scored twice across the two games.
Milan are in the market for a new striker, as are Inter and Premier League side Leeds United.
Despite that, it seems Eintracht Frankfurt are furthest ahead in the race as they need to replace the outgoing Randal Kolo Muani.
Retegui is 23 and unproven in Europe beyond his two goals in the Euro 2024 qualifiers in March but many coaches want him in their squads.
