Atletico Madrid’s latest signing, 19-year-old striker Eduardo Antonio ‘Toto’ Salvio, said he was “eager to win a title here” after completing his move to the UEFA Europa League contenders from Lanus, where he scored 11 times in 41 appearances,for a reported €8m.
The Argentinian international has agreed a five-and-a-half-year deal at Atletico, becoming their second signing in the January transfer window following Tiago’s loan move from Juventus.
Speaking at his presentation Salvio said:
“I’d describe myself as a powerful player and I am just as comfortable playing up front as on the wings. I love to get myself into the area and score goals. This is a team that I’ve always liked and I’ve been keen to play here; I want to win at this club.”
