La Liga club Sevilla have signed Argentina National Team defender Gabriel MERCADO from River Plate for €2.3 million.
MERCADO landed in Spain early on Thursday to finalize and sign his contract with the club. He joins an ever growing list of Argentinians at the club under Jorge SAMPAOLI. Along with MERCADO, there’s Matias KRANEVITTER, Luciano VIETTO, Joaquin CORREA and Nicolas PAREJA.
Now 29, MERCADO has gotten a big run of matches with the Argentina National Team at the right back position. In his 10 matches, he has scored two goals and in the process became Argentina’s top goal scorer in the team’s 2018 World Cup Qualifying campaign.
