Everything you need to know about Nicolas Tagliafico

Manchester City have joined Chelsea in the battle to sign Ajax left-back Nicolas Tagliafico, according to reports in the Argentinian media.

The 27-year-old is said to be on a list of targets that manager Pep Guardiola is looking at as he looks to reinforce the left-hand side of defence.

Tagliafico has been at Ajax for over two years since arriving from Independiente in the January 2018 transfer window. He has won the Eredivisie title as well as reaching the Champions League semi-finals since moving to the Netherlands.

Tagliafico spent five years at his first club Banfield and even had a loan spell in the Spanish second division with Real Murcia in 2012. It was only when he moved to Independiente in 2015 that he began to develop a reputation.

The defender won the Copa Sudamericana (South America’s equivalent of the Europa League) in 2017 and won his first senior cap for Argentina the same year. His success led to his move to Ajax not long afterwards.
