One star of the tournament in South America is Jefferson Montero who, according to the Metro, has confirmed that he will definitely be playing in Europe next season.
The 24-year old winger currently plays for Mexican outfit Monarcas Morelia but says that one European team has already made him an offer.
Arsenal, Swansea City and West Ham United are all rumoured to be interested in securing his signature and it seems they have now been given the green light to make the move.
“The club are handling it. Let’s see where I’ll go but for now I have some days off,” he said.
“It’s certain that I’ll leave the (Mexican) league, but let’s see where I’ll go. We expect to sort it out within the next few days. It will be Europe and thank God we are working on it, I hope it works out.”
Ecuador finished third in Group E, behind France and Switzerland, and were the only South American side to fail to get past the group stage.
