Velez Sarsfield’s Gino Peruzzi is attracting interest from Sunderland according to reports.

The 21-year old right-back has emerged as a summer target for the Black Cats but insists he is only focused on the Argentine league final against Newell’s Old Boys this weekend.

"My mind is set on Newell's, and then we will see,” said Peruzzi, who is the cousin of former Italy international Angelo.

Peruzzi is being heavily linked with a summer exit with Paolo Di Canio’s side waiting in the wings.
