I think they are a really good site for up to date football updates.

Reports coming out of Argentina claim FC Barcelona are set to make the trip to South America to negotiate for a 21-year-old forward.

Who is Julian Alvarez?

The player in question? Julian Alvarez. But who is the young forward Barcelona are said to be looking to land?

Alvarez is currently plying his trade in the Argentine top-flight with River Plate.

The forward would link up with River Plate’s youth side in 2015 and was eventually promoted to the senior set-up back in January of 2019.

Since then, Alvarez has featured on 94 occasions for River Plate. In said ties he has scored 33 and assisted 24.

It is this current season, though, were the Calchin-born forward has truly begun to shine.

In just 20 league outings this term, Alvarez has scored 17 and assisted seven for River Plate.

His recent up-turn in form would also see Alvarez be handed his senior Argentina debut back in June and he has since gone on to notch 5 appearances for them.
