Madrid, Jan 22 : Argentine winger Eduardo Salvio has signed a five-year contract with Atletico Madrid, the Spanish club said Friday.
Salvio, 19, who joins from Buenos Aires club Lanus, is Atletico's second January signing after Portuguese midfielder Tiago, who has been taken on loan for six months from Juventus.
Tiago made a goal scoring debut Thursday in the disappointing 1-1 draw at home to second division Celta Vigo in a King's Cup quarter-final first leg clash.
According to Madrid sports daily AS Friday, Atletico are also interested in Schalke 04's Brazilian right-back Rafinha.
Atletico made a poor start this season but are now 11th in La Liga, having won their last three matches under new coach Quique Sanchez Flores.(DPA)
