From departures to Atlanta and Amsterdam and a returning star, the transfer window was a busy one for some outstanding Argentineans
5 – Nicolás Tagliafico: Independiente to Ajax
Ajax are already reaping the rewards of picking up one of the best defenders in Argentina for the bargain price of $5 million as Nicolás Tagliafico picked up a man of the match award on his debut in the Klassieker against Feyenoord.
Independiente are feeling the loss of their inspirational captain after helping the side lift the Copa Sudamericana as a parting gift but the same commitment, energy and drive can be seen immediately in Amsterdam.
Jorge Sampaoli went to visit Tagliafico on his European tour and the 25-year-old hopes to be part of Argentina’s plans in Russia. There are few better options at left-back and if indeed Tagliafico does impress, don’t be surprised to see Ajax making a swift profit.
