The 16 year old wonder kick is set to leave Spain and join Lazio in Italy.
Luka Romero, who has represented Argentina at youth level, has been part of the Mallorca set up for several years. However, it now looks like he will be leaving Spain as his contract with Mallorca has ended.
According to several reports coming out of the Italian media, Romero will be signing with Lazio. Similar to Lionel Messi’s case, Romero is a free agent and Lazio appears to be his next destination.
An attacking midfielder by nature, at international level, Romero has attracted the interested of not only the Argentina national team but the Spanish one too. Spain have tried getting the Mexican born Argentine to play for their youth team but Romero has already decided on the sky blue and white. That is not to say that he cannot still switch as he has yet to play a senior international match.
Argentina U23 Olympic coach Fernando Batista did not select Romero for the tournament which begins later this month.
