Ajax defender Magallan coming to Crotone

Newly-promoted Serie A side Crotone have secured defender Lisandro Magallan from Ajax, on loan with option to buy for €9m.

According to Sky Sport Italia and Fabrizio Romano, the Argentine will be in Italy tomorrow for his medical.

It’ll be a loan with an option to buy at the end of the season, depending on whether they avoid relegation straight back into Serie B.

Magallan just returned to base from a season-long loan with Deportivo Alaves in Spain, where he made 18 competitive appearances.

The former Boca Juniors centre-back turns 27 later this month and only joined Ajax from Boca Juniors for €9m in January 2019.

He’ll be the second Ajax player to join a Serie A minnow, as Razvan Marin went to Cagliari in a similar deal.
