Report: River pursue Pastore

River Plate are reportedly considering a move for out-of-favour Roma midfielder Javier Pastore.

According to TNT Sports, River are looking at Pastore as a possible replacement for Juan Fernando Quintero, who has been struck by an ACL injury.

The broadcaster adds the 29-year-old is highly rated by the Argentines’ Coach Marcelo Gallardo.

The former Palermo star has struggled for form and fitness since joining Roma from Paris Saint-Germain last summer, making just 14 appearances.
