Talleres forward Nahuel Bustos continues to be a sought-after striker in Europe with a long list of clubs interested in him.
Roma are serious about signing the 21-year-old Argentine as a long-term replacement for Edin Dzeko.
There have been reports of Valencia closing in on a deal for Bustos, a prolific goal scorer in his homeland.
Atalanta also like the young forward, but according to Tuttomercatoweb, two more clubs have joined the race.
La Liga club Real Sociedad and Ligue 1 side Bordeaux have ‘taken the first important steps’ to steal him from under Roma’s nose.
Both clubs could offer Bustos an instant starting place, while at Roma he could initially be an understudy for Dzeko.
Talleres are open to selling Bustos to whichever club presents the best offer to them.
Bustos plays in Argentina’s Primera División and in the 2019-20 season, he scored nine goals in 20 appearances.
The Argentina under-23 international also had a loan spell with Pachuca in Liga MX, making eight appearances.
