Sevilla FC have reached an agreement with Club Ferro Carril Oeste to sign their Argentinian youth international Federico Fazio for €800,000.
The 19-year-old central defender is currently in Paraguay with the Albiceleste as they attempt to qualify for this summer's FIFA U-20 World Cup in Canada and the 2008 Olympic Games via the South American Under-20 Championship. Fazio, who has accepted a five-year contract, will meet up with his new team-mates at the end of next week. Sevilla continue their quest to become the first side since Real Madrid CF (1985 and 1986) to win the UEFA Cup in successive seasons when they face FC Steaua Bucuresti in the Round of 32 on 15 and 22 February.
