Argentina and China could meet in a pre-World Cup friendly in April or May, according to media reports in the South American country.

The Argentine Football Association (AFA) will seek the opinion of national team coach Jorge Sampaoli before confirming its interest in the match, likely to be played in China, the Ole newspaper reported.

Argentina have already confirmed friendlies against Italy and Spain in March.

AFA officials are also negotiating a clash with a South American rival at the Bombonera stadium in Buenos Aires in late May and a duel with Catalonia in Barcelona, proposed for June 4.

The Albiceleste will begin their 2018 World Cup campaign against Iceland in Group D on June 16.
