The agent of Ajax left-back Nicolas Tagliafico has confirmed there is interest in his client but nothing is concrete yet.

Reports in Argentina on Monday stated that Real Madrid were following Tagliafico as they seek a replacement for Marcelo.

Speaking to Rivadavia, Tagliafico’s agent Ricardo Schlieper said there is no concrete interest yet but did confirm he is being followed by a “Big Spanish Club.”

He said, “It’s said that Tagliafico’s name has been included on Real Madrid’s shortlist because Marcelo will join Juventus.

“However, no-one’s called me yet, even if there have been enquiries from other teams. He has two years left on his contract and he has no release clause, but Ajax have set a minimum price for the top European clubs.

“Which teams are they? All I can say is that among them, there’s a big Spanish club. That said, I think it’s the right time for Tagliafico to step up a level.”

The 26-year-old Argentinian international joined Ajax last year from Independiente and has so far made 44 appearances for the club.
