Spartak Moscow bring in proven goalscorer in ex-Guangzhou striker Barrios

Spartak Moscow have signed a quality goalscorer in Paraguay international Lucas Barrios.

The 28-year old striker joined the Russians for €7million (£6m) from Chinese Super League club Guangzhou Evergrande on the weekend and brings with him a knack for getting goals in Europe.

During his time with Borussia Dortmund, the former Colo-Colo superstar scored 39 goals in 83 Bundesliga appearances, for a total of 49 in 102 outings for the German club.

Barrios, who was born in Argentina, was absolutely delighted to sign with Spartak after a failed stint in China.

"Spartak are the biggest club in Russia and well-known in Europe for competing in the Champions League and Europa League," he said.
