Real Sociedad had representatives, including sporting director Loren, at Independiente to watch left-back Nicolas Tagliafico.
AS reports Loren was joined by Javi Perez, the club’s technical secretary, to scout 23-year-old Tagliafico in person during the Independiente vs. Racing 1-1 draw on Sunday.
Tagliafico, pictured above in red, played the full game and is said to be under consideration for a call-up to the senior Argentina squad after representing his country at youth level.
Loren and Perez have been scouting other players during their time in South America, AS notes, but this wasn’t the first time they have watched the defender.
Contact has been made to both Tagliafico’s club and his representatives to establish his situation but haven’t made a former offer, while he has experience of Spain after a spell with the B team of Real Murcia.
