Rio de Janeiro: Brazilian Serie A club Atletico Mineiro are considering a move to sign Peru international full-back Miguel Trauco, according to the player’s agent. “We have made a proposal to the club and they are analysing it,” agent Jose Chacon told the Superesportes news portal. Trauco currently plays for Lima-based Universitario in Peru’s top flight. He joined them this year from from Union Comercio, reports Xinhua. The 23-year-old has been capped seven times for Peru and was the first choice left-back in the team’s recent Copa America campaign. He missed a spot-kick in the team’s quarterfinal penalty shootout against Colombia last Friday, which Peru lost.
