Bologna have announced the signing of Universidad Catolica star defender Erick Pulgar.

The 21-year-old Chilean international is regarded as one of the brightest young talents in his homeland, and is capable of playing at the heart of defence and also in a defensive midfielder role.

After starting out his career at Antofagasta, Pulgar then made the move to Chilean giants Universidad Catolica in the summer of 2014, and established himself as one of the team’s key players.

Bologna announced the outright transfer of the player on their official website, and he arrives to strengthen the competition in the Rossoblu rearguard ahead of their return to the top flight.

Pulgar made 35 appearances for Universidad last term, netting an impressive seven goals.
