Matias Silvestre would be perfect for Roma, says agent

The Argentine only joined Palermo last summer from rivals Catania, but his representative has talked up the idea of him moving again in a few months, this time to the Olimpico

The agent of Palermo defender Matias Silvestre has hinted that a summer transfer to Roma could be on the cards after claiming his client would be a "perfect" signing for the Giallorossi.

Despite playing in one of Serie A's leakiest defences, the 27-year-old has shone in the Rosanero's rearguard this season since his arrival from Catania, and his performances have not gone unnoticed, according to the Italian press.

Roma are the latest club to have been credited with an interest on Silvestre and the news has been welcomed by the player's agent Fernando Cosentino, who feels the Olimpico would serve as an ideal destination for the player.

"I've heard the talk that Roma want Matias, but I have to be honest and admit that nobody from the club has been in touch with us," Cosentino told Retesport.

“However, Silvestre would certainly be happy to play for a great side with a big project. He would be a perfect player for the Giallorossi."

Silvestre has scored three goals in 25 league appearances for Palermo this season, and is set to take to the pitch against Juventus on Saturday.
