Nicolás Tagliafico is an Argentine left back, born on the 31st August 1992, who plays for Ajax. He debuted for Banfield in 2010, and quickly gained a reputation as one of the best young full backs in the country. In spite of Banfield’s relegation in 2012, Tagliafico was widely coveted by clubs in and outside Argentina, and after many offers, was loaned to Real Murcia of Spain for the 2012-13 season. After an unhappy spell in Spain, he returned in 2013 to help Banfield win promotion back to the Primera in 2013-14, before a US$3m transfer to Independiente in February 2015. Tagliafico is an Argentine Under-15, Under-17 and Under-20 international.
