Athletico Paranaense striker Vitor Roque is one of the players Barça are targeting. According to SER Catalunya, a Brazilian emissary will meet with representatives of the club to understand in detail the interest of Barca in the South American jewel.
The Brazilian wonderkid, who at 18 years of age is one of the great talents on the Latin American market, would cost no less than 35 million euros, according to several sources.
His current club has 85% ownership of the player’s rights and could even ask for a figure in excess of 50 million euros up front.
The young player has already made his debut for Brazil’s senior national team and was the top scorer at the South American U-20 Championship. The player wants to wear the Azulgrana shirt and make the leap to Europe as soon as possible.
