Wilmer Aguirre, a target for River Plate, has been transferred

Buenos Aires powerhouses River Plate have formally indicated interest in buying Wilmer Aguirre for the upcoming season, according to club president Guillermo Alarcon. This suggests that Wilmer Aguirre’s future may lie in Argentina. The player has reportedly already received an offer from River, but Alianza Lima is reportedly analyzing the proposition after also receiving bids from two other Argentine teams, Lanus and San Lorenzo.

The 26-year-old Aguirre became well-known throughout South America following Alianza Lima’s 4-1 rout of Estudiantes de La Plata in February featured a magnificent hat-trick from him. He was frequently compared to global superstars Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi because of how impressive each of his goals was on its own.

Although the striker has only played four times for Peru, he is anticipated to play a key role in the team’s preparations for the 2011 Copa America and the 2014 World Cup qualifiers.

Aguirre chose to return to Alianza after spending two years in Metz of France, but it appears that he is now prepared to move up to one of Argentina’s top teams.

Aguirre wants to follow in the footsteps of some of his fellow Peruvians, like Nolberto Solano, Paolo Guerrero, Claudio Pizarro, Juan Vargas, and Jefferson Farfan, who gained notoriety in South America before experiencing great success in the top European football divisions.
