Sevilla confirmed on Tuesday the return of Argentine striker Lucas Ocampos after reaching an agreement with the Dutch Ajax to end his loan in the Eredivisie team where he had barely participated.

Ocampos joined the Seville team in the summer of 2019, with whom he had a contract until 2025 and in which he had been a key player, especially in winning the 2020 Europa League.

“Hello Sevilla fans, I’m very happy to be with you again and to wear this shirt. It’s a difficult moment, but I know that both my teammates and I are going to do everything to reverse this situation. I’ll wait for you in the next game and hopefully things change as soon as possible,” Ocampos said in a video on the Sevilla website.
