Ajax have confirmed the signing of Argentinian defender Lisandro Martinez on a four-year deal with the option of a fifth.

The 21-year-old centre-back, who can also play on the left of defence, is signed from Defensa y Justicia from Argentina. The alleged fee is around €7 million.

Ajax sporting director Marc Overmars told the club’s official site, “Martínez is a left-footed player who can handle multiple positions in the back.

“He is a defender who wants to play attacking football. He brings with him a certain mentality that we can use well here, similar to what his fellow countryman Nico Tagliafico shows here. And Lisandro is still young, so we expect him to develop further in the coming years and into an even better player. “

Martinez is Ajax’s fourth signing of the summer after Razvan Marin (Standard Liège), Kik Pierie (SC Heerenveen) and Kjell Scherpen (FC Emmen)
