Report: Boca Juniors interested in Chicago Fire midfielder Gaston Gimenez

Gaston Gimenez - Chicago Fire - March 7, 2020


Chicago Fire Designated Player Gaston Gimenez is reportedly drawing interest from outside the league, with Argentina's TyC Sports stating that he is on the radar of Buenos Aires giants Boca Juniors.

However, a club source tells that Gimenez regularly receives interest from teams around the world but there’s no chance that he’ll depart the Fire this winter.

Per the report, Gimenez would help Boca bolster their squad as they look to win the Copa Libertadores for the first time since 2007. The report also suggests that Boca value Gimenez's versatility. Boca are familiar with the 29-year-old because he spent the entirety of his career in Argentina before joining the Fire in 2020. Gimenez also has one cap for the Argentina national team, but has since filed a one-time switch to represent Paraguay.

Gimenez was a key figure for the Fire in his first season in Chicago, playing 18 games and picking up three assists.
