Striker Barrios set to join Maradona's Gimnasia

Buenos Aires, Jan 17 (TIWN) Diego Maradona's Gimnasia have reached a deal to sign veteran Paraguay international striker Lucas Barrios.

The 35-year-old is expected to undergo medical treatment in the coming days after agreeing to personal terms with the Argentinian Superliga outfit, reports Xinhua news agency.

"If Maradona calls me, I can''t say no," Barrios was quoted as saying by Argentina''s Ole news service. The former Borussia Dortmund forward is a free agent after parting ways with Gimnasia''s Argentinian rivals Huracan last month.

Gimnasia are currently 21st in the 24-team Superliga standings, having risen from last place since Maradona was appointed head coach in September last year.

They will return from Argentinian football''s summer recess with a home Superliga clash against Velez Sarsfield on January 24.
