RCD Espanyol have announced the signing of Brazilian forward Léo Baptistão from fellow LaLiga outfit Atlético Madrid.
Five-year deal with Los Pericos
Baptistão moves to the Barcelona-based club for a fee of between five and six million euros, putting pen to paper on a five-year contract at the RCDE Stadium.
He joined Atleti from Rayo Vallecano in 2013 but was unable to establish himself at the Vicente Calderón, leaving for a loan spell at Real Betis before being lent back to Rayo for the 2014/15 campaign.
The 23-year-old then spent a season-long loan at Villarreal in 2015/16, scoring six goals in 34 appearances for the Submarino Amarillo.
