Feyenoord have announced the signing of 22-year-old Peruvian left-back Marcos Lopez from San Jose Earthquakes, with him signing a four-year deal.
The Rotterdam club have been on the hunt for a new left-back this transfer window after losing Tyrell Malacia to Manchester United.
They’ve been linked with a number of players but have now ended their search, securing the services of one of the most highly-rated talents to have played in the MLS in recent times.
“It’s great to be able to play for this beautiful club and city in Europe,” Lopez told the club’s website.
“This is a big step in my career and an opportunity that I want to seize with both hands. With the help of the people within the club and the support of the fanatical, loyal supporters, I believe that I will soon feel at home here.”
The transfer fee is said to be around €1 million, which seems a bargain given Lopez is young and is already an established Peru international.
