Fiorentina’s Argentine defender Facundo Roncaglia has confirmed he “would like to play for Italy.”
The player arrived in Serie A this summer and has quickly become a fan favourite at the Stadio Artemio Franchi.
Roncaglia has an Italian passport due to his roots in the country and told Sportweek he could well become an ‘Oriundo.’
“If a call from Argentina does not arrive, then I would like to play for Italy.”
The 25-year-old has played for Boca Juniors, Espanyol, Estudiantes and now Fiorentina.
