América are considering adding to their Uruguayan contingent by making a move for Nacional winger Brian Ocampo.

The Azulcrema have signed centre-back Sebastián Cáceres and attacker Federico Viñas from the South American country in recent years.

Both those acquisitions have proven successful, and so it is maybe no surprise that Las Águilas would look to land another of the Primera División’s top talents.

According to TUDN reporter Rub Sainz, the 21-year-old has been on the Mexican side’s radar since late last year, although no formal bid has been made yet.

Ocampo’s current contract expires at the end of this year, which might prompt Nacional into selling this summer rather than losing him for nothing.

The Uruguay U-20 international, who is valued at $770,000 (via Transfermarkt), has started all three of Nacional’s Copa Libertadores group games so far this season.
