Sevilla have confirmed the capture of Chile Under-20 captain Bryan Rabello on a free transfer from Colo Colo.

Rabello, 18, will arrive in Spain next week to undertake a full pre-season with the La Liga side, before dropping to Sevilla B for the start of the season.

The attacking midfielder came to prominence early, making his debut aged 16, before going on to make his senior Chile debut earlier this month.

Regarded as one of the finest young talents in South American football, Rabello had drawn the attention of several major European sides. However, Sevilla have moved quickly to secure his signature.

Rabello has made 25 appearances for Colo Colo, scoring twice before his contract expired this summer. The rising star has signed a five-year deal with the Spanish side.
