West Ham United target Juan Roman Riquelme: I can still play in any side

Argentine star is considering offers from several clubs this summer
Boca Juniors midfielder Juan Roman Riquelme is adamant that he is still capable of competing on football’s highest level and would thrive if he made a move to the Premier League.

The 31-year-old’s deal at Boca Juniors has expired and after nearing an agreement to join Brazilian club Flamengo, the former Argentina international now has piqued the interest of some clubs in Europe.

“I am a player who can play in any side,” Riquelme told The Mirror.

“I want to be happy and know where I am going to play. I feel I can play at the highest for many more years.

“I have had several offers from clubs in Argentina and there is an English club asking about me and my agent is dealing with it.”

Riquelme has plenty of Champions League experience during his career featuring in the competition with both Villarreal and Barcelona, but the Argentine would like to make the switch to the Premier League.

After having a falling out with current Argentina manager Diego Maradona, Riquelme was not considered for the football legend’s World Cup squad.

Reports suggest that Riquelme favors a move to West Ham after co-owners David Sullivan and David Gold impressed him with their future plans for the club.
