OFFICIAL: Inter sign Lisandro Lopez from Benfica

The Nerazzurri finally have their defensive reinforcement, a move head coach Luciano Spalletti will love.

Internazionale announced the signing of Argentine defender Lisandro Lopez from Benfica via their official website.

“Inter have a new player and it’s Lisandro Ezequiel Lopez. The Argentine defender has signed on loan until 30 June 2018 (with an option to make the switch permanent).”

“To play for a club such as Inter who are one of the biggest in Europe is a dream which means a lot for me,” Lopez told Inter TV. “I’ve come here to give a hand to the team, to help it reach its objectives. There have been a lot of Argentines at Inter. Among others, Samuel, Zanetti and Milito come to mind and they’re all players who’ve made history. I hope to do well too. I used to follow Serie A and it’s one of the best leagues in the world for me. It’s very tactical, very competitive and I’ll look to give my all and learn day by day.”

Lopez arrived in Europe in 2013 from Arsenal FC (Argentina) when he signed with Benfica. He was then loaned out to Getafe for the 2013/14 season and has played for the Lusitanians ever since.

The defender has not featured often this season, making only 8 appearances in all competitions.
