Roque plays for Campeonato Brasileiro Serie A [Brazilian top division] outfit Athletico Paranaense who have reportedly put his asking price at €60 million.
According to Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona are looking to recruit the prolific 17-year-old as a backup to star striker Robert Lewandowski and a probable replacement when the Pole leaves Camp Nou.

However, the youngster has also been linked with a transfer to Arsenal, Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain, amongst other clubs in the summer.
Roque was a joint top scorer at the 2023 U-20 South American Championship bagging six goals and one assist in eight games as Brazil won the tournament. His teammate, Andrey Santos, is the other six-goal scorer.
