The agent of Roma midfielder Julio Baptista admits there's clubs queuing up to discuss the Brazilian in January.

The latest is Argentina's River Plate, which are keen to bring Baptista back to South America for next season.

Baptista's agent, Herminio Menendez, said: "We hear from a lot of teams, but Julio is thinking only of Roma. The newspapers write, the people speak but Julio is focused only on doing well for Roma.

"I do not know if he will leave in January, he is now in Rome and is a player of Roma."
