Sevilla have announced the signing of Argentine playmaker Papu Gómez until 2024.

The 32-year-old joins Julen Lopetegui’s side from Serie A club Atalanta. The Europa League champions will reportedly pay €5.5m + €3m in add-ons.

Gómez flew to Sevilla with his agent on Tuesday. Before leaving Italy, he said: “I love Atalanta but I’m ready and happy for this new chapter”.

An experienced attacking forward, he is a very savvy addition to the LaLiga team’s squad. Playing in a number 10 role at Atalanta, he contributed goals and assists during the greatest spell in the club’s history.
