Report: MLS teams interested in Argentine midfielder Esteban Rolon


Argentine midfielders have found considerable success in MLS, and a new report suggests multiple teams are eyeing a defensive-minded midfielder from the South American country.

Seattle-based journalist Niko Moreno reported on Wednesday that two MLS teams are interested in Esteban Rolon (pictured above, right). The 24-year-old is under contract to Spanish second-tier outfit Malaga.

Rolon came through the Argentinos Juniors system, making his first team debut in 2016, before joining Malaga the following year. But his playing time has been limited there, and he spent last season on loan at Serie A side Genoa, where they just escaped relegation.

While it's unclear which teams are said to be interested in Rolon, the 2020 MLS regular season is scheduled to kick off on February 29.
