Arsenal revive interest in Argentine starlet Maxi Romero

Arsenal are still attempting to sign Maxi Romero from Velez Sarsfield.

The Gunners were showing considerable interest in the 17-year-old young gun last year but a serious ankle injury saw the potential deal fall over.

However, the Daily Mirror suggests that Arsene Wenger remains keen on the Argentine and could make a fresh £4.5million bid for his services this summer.

Romero, who continues to return to full fitness, has been dubbed the 'new Lionel Messi' and is one of the brightest talents to emerge out of South America in recent times.
