Claudio Echeverri – Barcelona Transfer Target – Best Skills & Goals

FC Barcelona have already begun the process to try and sign Argentina U-17 star Claudio Echeverri – who has been dubbed the ‘New Lionel Messi’ – according to SPORT.

The teenager raised eyebrows at the recent U-17 World Cup in Indonesia. And while his Argentina team could only finish fourth overall as Germany took home the top prize, River Plate star Echeverri put Europe’s top clubs on alert with a stunning hat trick against bitter rivals Brazil during a 3-0 win in the quarter finals.

Various outlets in Argentina have reported on interest from the likes of Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid in addition to Manchester City from the Premier League.
