Transfer talk: Sunderland linked with Argentina defender

Have your say

FULL-BACK Gino Peruzzi is close to a move to the Stadium of Light, according to reports in Argentina.

Sunderland are in the market for a new right-back this summer, with Phil Bardsley expected to leave the club after falling foul of Paolo Di Canio’s disciplinary policy at the end of last season.

And Argentina international Peruzzi is reportedly on Sunderland’s radar with the 20-year-old impressing in his homeland for Velez Sarsfield this season.

Sunderland are also targeting Argentine left-back Lucas Orban, although Spanish side Villarreal are in the running for the defender too.
