By Football Italias staff The Coach of the Week is on the lookout for a young player that will have a big impact for the future of the Rossoneri.
The 24-year-old is already an important part of Roma’s defence as he is the link between two of their back fours, with Matias Vecino taking the number one spot.
The Italian has played in every Serie A game this season and is a vital part of their defence, with Casemiro and Juanmi joining him.
The Argentine has been on a superb run of form and has scored 10 goals and assisted two in his last four appearances.
The young defender is also on the radar of the Giallorossi and could be in line to make his debut for the first time when the Rossonas come to Turin on Sunday.
He’s a player that has a bright future ahead of him and Roma are ready to offer him a contract extension.
Roma are in a position to offer Matias an extension at the end of the season as they are currently in the Champions League.
However, it’s a gamble, as the player has been linked with many clubs, including Napoli, Inter and Chelsea.
Napoli, Roma and Inter are all interested in the young defender and Roma have offered him a new deal at the beginning of the transfer window.
It’s no surprise that Roma have been linked to the young Brazilian, as he was one of the first stars of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
The midfielder is also keen on a move to Italy as he has recently been named in the Italian squad for the 2018 World Cup.
The 20-year old has scored 15 goals and assists in 20 Serie A games this season, helping his side to second place in the table.
Injuries have also plagued the Brazilian this season.
His goal tally has dropped from 17 in 2014-15 to 13 this campaign, and he has only managed nine in the whole of 2016-17.
He is a player who has the potential to become a real star at the highest level of Italian football and he could be Roma’s answer to Matias.
