Mexico’s Veracruz have made a bid to sign Argentina international striker Lucas Pratto from Brazilian outfit Sao Paulo, the player’s agent said on Saturday.
Pratto has scored nine goals in 16 appearances for Sao Paulo, whom he joined from their Brazilian rivals Atletico Mineiro in January.
Despite settling in quickly at his new club, the 28-year-old is prepared to listen to offers, according to his agent Matias Lahorca.
“[Veracruz president] Fidel Kuri has sent me a proposal and he is very interested in signing a player like Lucas Pratto,” Lahorca was quoted as saying by Globo Esporte.
“It’s not going to be easy because he recently moved to Sao Paulo and is the club captain. But Veracruz have been watching him for a long time and know that he would be a great signing.”
