Ajax have officially confirmed the signing of Edson Alvarez from Club America on a five-year deal.

On Friday, both clubs announced an agreement over the defender, who then made his way to Amsterdam. On Monday, Alvarez completed his medical checks and put pen-to-paper on his five-year contract.

Ajax pays Club America €15 million for the centre-back, who is the replacement for Matthijs de Ligt, who is now with Juventus.

The 21-year-old is the sixth new permanent arrival at Ajax this summer after Razvan Marin, Kik Pierie, Kjell Scherpen, Lisandro Martínez and Quincy Promes.
