Marcos Senesi has left Feyenoord and signed for Bournemouth, with the fee believed to be around €15 million.
The Argentine impressed many with his performances last season, including Bournemouth and West Ham, who were both interested in signing him this summer.
It’s now been confirmed that the former have secured his services, with the centre-back putting pen to paper on a four-year deal with the Premier League club.
“This is a huge signing for us and Marcos brings significant pedigree to our squad,” said Chief Executive Neill Blake.
“There was, inevitably, a lot of interest in him so for him to choose to come here is a clear sign of our appeal as a football club.
“Bringing in a current Argentina international with experience in European competitions is another indication of the club’s ambition and we are all looking forward to seeing Marcos in an AFC Bournemouth shirt.”
Senesi became something of a fan favourite during his time at Feyenoord and thanked those fans for the support in a parting message.
“I particularly want to thank you, Feyenoorders, for the unconditional support love and respect towards me and my family. You made us feel at home and we will never forget that.” he said.
