Léo Baptistão: Espanyol confirm signing of forward

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.

Baptistão played on loan at Villarreal during the 2015/16 season.
