Diego Maradona Jr claims he has been contacted about the prospect of joining a club in La Liga.
The son of the Argentina idol currently plies his trade at Italian Serie D side Venafro and has never played top-flight football.
The 21-year old says he has been contacted by clubs in Spain’s top two divisions and is waiting to see what develops.
He told Brazilian website globoesporte.com: “There have been contacts from Spain, both top flight and others from the second division. We will see what happens.
“I think my style is similar to Carlos Tevez. I am a player who likes attacking, but also competes in midfield and always at speed.”
Maradona Jr also wants to follow in his father’s footsteps by playing for the Argentina national team despite being born in Italy.
He said: “I have Argentinian relatives in my family and the national team would be a dream, as well as playing at Napoli.”
