Diego Fagundez is being eyed by several Serie A clubs, according to a report from tuttomercatoweb.com.

The article, which was posted just before the new year, claims that Fagundez is drawing interested from Torino, Atalanta, and Chievo. The author doesn't go into any further depth about the rumor, but he does laud the 20-year-old's achievements in MLS.

Fagundez has been with the Revolution since signing a Homegrown contract in November 2010. In total, he has offered 28 goals and 18 assists in 118 appearances. His best season came in 2013 when he had 13 goals and seven assists. His efforts won him the Revolution's MVP award.

Without any real specifics, it's hard to know what to make of the Fagundez rumor. In December 2014, Frank Dell'Appa of ESPN FC reported that Fagundez had two years left on his contract. With this in mind, it's possible that the Revs might want to fetch a transfer fee for the budding star, especially if he has a desire to play abroad.

That said, Fagundez is the face of the New England Revolution and played significant minutes in 2015. An offer would have to be pretty significant for the Revs to consider selling the Massachusetts native.

It's worth noting that tuttomercatoweb.com printed a similar rumor around this time last year. The report claimed that Atalanta was interested in Fagundez. The rumor ultimately disappeared without a fuss.
