Report: Lazio acquire River Plate wonderkid Joaquin Ibanez

According to widespread reports from the Italian media, Lazio are on the verge of signing River Plate wonderkid Joaquin Perez Ibanez, born in 2000.

The 18-year-old is a forward, capable of playing both centrally and out wide, as well as at sort of second-striker/centre-forward role; meaning he could have both long-term and short-term uses at Lazio.

He’s Argentinian but also holds a Spanish passport, therefore not taking up a potential non-EU spot. It is thought that Ibanez will join the Primavera ranks, yet the young star has plenty of potential to break into the first team in the coming seasons.
