River Plate midfielder Juan Quintero scored a sensational free-kick at the weekend, showing exactly why he is attracting so much interest around Europe.

According to Don Balon, the Colombian star was a transfer target for Arsenal, Chelsea and Inter Milan during the January window and after his latest performance, there is every chance formal bids could come flying in this summer.

River picked up a 2-0 win against Racing Club in the Argentine Primera Division on Sunday and Quintero opened the scoring in the first half, with a logic-defying free-kick from a ridiculous angle.

Quintero placed the ball closer to the right touchline than the middle of the pitch, but he produced an incredible curling strike which nestled perfectly into the top right-hand corner.
