Mario Hermoso joins Atletico Madrid from Espanyol. The 24-year-old took his medical in the Spanish capital on Thursday.
The centre-back joins Kieran Trippier, from Tottenham, as a new Atletico signing, as they look to bolster a back-line shaken by the departures of Diego Godin and Lucas Hernandez.
Hermoso joins on a five-year contract for 25 million euros plus 4 million in variables.
“Hermoso arrives from Espanyol where he played 59 games in two seasons,” said Atletico in a statement. “In these two campaigns he scored four goals and was key for the Catalan team.”
