Argentine newspaper Ovación is reporting that Sporting Lisbon is interested in signing 21-year-old striker Maximiliano Urruti on loan for the rest of the season.

It is believed that the Newell’s Old Boys forward would act as a replacement in case Dutch striker Ricky Van Wolfswinkel leaves for the Premier League during this month’s transfer window. Wolfswinkel has been linked to Norwich and Newcastle United.

The deal for Urruti would include a 400,000 Euros option to sign him to a permanent deal at the end of this season. Urruti has played in 14 matches so far this season for the Argentinian club but only one start. He is yet to register a goal.
