Sunderland are reported to be meeting with Argentinian defender Marcos Angeleri's agent to discuss a bid to bring the Estudiantes' player to Wearside. Sunderland Manager Steve Bruce is looking at his right-back options after being put off by Spurs' ridiculous asking price for Scottish International Alan Hutton.
Hutton spent the second half of the season on loan, but Spurs are unwilling to lower their estimated £9million valuation for the full-back - which is utterly ridiculous.
Bruce has now turned his attention to Argentina international Angeleri, who could cost $2.8million (£1.9m) according to South American reports - Angeleri would be the 3rd South American brought to the club since Steve Bruce's arrival last summer - joining two Paraguayans Paulo Da Silva and new boy Cristian Riveros.
The 27-year-old, who missed out on selection to Argentina's world cup squad due to injury, could now be set for a Premier League move this summer.
"In the next few days I'll be meeting with Estudiantes' officials to let them know about Sunderland's proposal," explained Pires - Angeleri's agent.
"If they agree to transfer the player for the amount that's being offered I'll travel to England to meet with Sunderland's board members."
