Lucas Alario would reportedly be interested in returning to his former club River Plate in search of the minutes he has lost at Bayer Leverkusen.


The rise of Patrik Schick has left him out of the starting 11 while the recent transfer of Sardar Azmoun shows that Die Werkself is ready to move on from the Argentinian.

The center forward knows that to be able to fight for a spot in Argentina's World Cup squad, he has to raise the amount and value of his minutes.

According to several reports, Alario has been contacted by his former club about a possible return in the summer.

The transfer would be difficult financially for the South American giant, but Alario's will of returning would be key for it to succeed.

Alario spent an immensely successful stint at the orders of Marcelo Gallardo, winning a Copa Libertadores and a Copa Sudamericana while being the undisputed starting forward and scoring 40 goals in the process.

The Leverkusen forward is Gallardo's preferred replacement to cover for the departure of the young Julian Alvarez, who recently transferred to Manchester City for an initial fee of €21 million.
