Brazil's Fluminense are chasing Villarreal midfielder Juan Roman Riquelme.

Flu's sports chief, Branco, said: "Riquelme is exceptional, he was excellent for Boca Juniors in the Copa Libertadores and if he was to come to us it would be wonderful.

"It will be difficult because he is an expensive player. But the directors will try because it would be a dream come true to bring him here."
