Lazio have officially completed the signing of Patricio Gabarron Gil, a product of the Barcelona youth system.
The 22-year-old can operate at right-back or in central midfield, and made one senior appearance in his time at Camp Nou, a 22 minute cameo in a defeat to Ajax in 2013.
Known as Patric, the club announced on its official Twitter account that the Spaniard will be a Lazio player, starting from July 1.
Patric was described by Barça’s official website as “an inside right but can also adapt to a more central role.”
The site lauded the youngster as “a terrific reader of the game” and noted that he is “also physically very strong.”
