Sevilla sealed the signing of Sporting Lisbon defender Marcos Acuna on Monday, for a reported fee of around 10 million euros.
Left back Acuna replaces Sergio Reguilon, who was on loan from Real Madrid last season and is now being linked to Manchester United in Spanish and English media.
“The player arrived in Sevilla on Sunday and, on Monday morning, he passed his medical and signed a four-year contract,” said Sevilla in a statement.
“ Tonight, he will link up with his teammates in Algorfa. Born in the Argentine city of Zapala, in the province of Neuquén, 28 years ago (28/10/1991), the left back has been capped by his national team on 27 occasions.”
The Europa League winners have had a busy summer, bringing Ivan Rakitic back to the Sanchez-Pizjuan from Barcelona, signing Suso from AC Milan, Oscar Rodriguez from Real Madrid and Girona goalkeeper Bono, who was on loan at Sevilla last season.
