Alejandro Papu Gomez joins Sevilla from Atalanta


Alejandro Papu Gomez has joined Sevilla from Atalanta.

Papu Gomez has left Atalanta after six seasons at the club, spending 10 of the past 11 years in Italy. The Argentine has signed a three and a half year deal, which would keep him with Sevilla until the end of the 2024 season.

Scoring over 50 goals for Atalanta, the 32 year old broke the Serie A assist record last season when he ended with 16 to his name. He joins fellow Argentine players Lucas Ocampos, Marcos Acuna and Franco Vazquez at the club.


  1. individually romero is better than dias this season in domestic as well as champions league ….let’s check stats of domestic league… romero match played 14 vs dias match played 17….romero 1goal vs dias 0 …romero 2A vs dias 0….romero 6 yellow C vs dias 2…..romero 5 keypass vs dias 0 ….romero 7 chance created vs dias 0 ….romero 55 interception vs dias 18….romero 24 clearence vs dias 51…dias has advantage over discipline, clearence & clean sheet ….ofcourse dias will get more cleansheet as mancity plays possession football….even comparing champions league stats romero is better than dias …. if we want to win trophy we need romero & emi martinez seriously ….

    • Very interesting information, and gives a greater perspective on how good Romero is. Días is being completely hyped by Man City fans while Romero remains underrated.

      • Dias is not hyped , he is a very decent CB improved Man City defense and very disciplined and errror free. Romero is good as well. Although there is difference in PL and Serie A.

        • Not hyped? All man city fans do now is rave over him and stones, they attribute their recent success to both players. You may not have seen it but I’ve seen it everywhere

      • Dias is very discilipned CB do not compare him with C. Romero. It is not CB’s role to score goals until forward players find it difficult to score. I have seen Man City games only way you can score goals against them is in counter attack because at that time they have much distance to cover otherwise Man City is very disciplined site to concede goal.

        • Dias has discipline no doubt ….dias has genius coach & world class players in each and every position….but statistically romero is far better & contribute more than dias …..let’s forget about domestic league & see stats of champions league now …romero match played 5 vs dias 5….romero 1g&1a vs dias 0 ….romero 2 yc vs dias 1 ….romero chance created 5 vs dias 2 …romero key pass 4 vs dias 2….romero tackles succeed 6 vs dias 7….romero 24 interception vs dias 8…romero 26 clearence vs dias 9 …see romer contribution is more here in champions league ….it may not be cb role to score goal , create chances ….but if cb is scoring goal & creating chances it may be additional contribution to team …. …..and romero has pace which is extremely needed for argentina national team ….

  2. Sevilla and La Liga might not be a cakewalk for Papu at 32. But let’s see a talanted player always finds his way. Lopetegui is an intelligent coach , his work with Acuna has surprised me.

  3. For this window ending next week, i doubt any other young top talent is moving. Atleast rumours wld have been hot by now. I am guessing most of the youngsters u mentioned will get their europe moves in july transfer.

  4. Good for papu & new lease of life for gaich. Hope no youngster with NT aspirations ever goes to Russian league again .
    Mussachio moving to Lazio after the injury wrecked stint in milan.
    & it looks like coudet will pull in franco cervi from benfica to celta vigo.
    Hoping some good mid table clubs pulls out montiel at last minute. Senesi, buendia seem to continue in current clubs till summer atleast
