The arrival of a center attacker was a great wish of trainer Dick Advocaat, who saw Nicolai Jørgensen struggle with his form in recent months and had to miss the injured Robert Bozenik.
Pratto, who made his professional debut at Boca Juniors, was not a base player for River Plate this season. The five-time international of Argentina previously played in Europe for the Norwegian FC Lyn and Genoa.
Technical director Frank Arnesen expects Pratto to be available quickly for Feyenoord, which will resume the premier league next Sunday with an away match against Sparta Rotterdam. “With the arrival of an experienced striker like Lucas, we are adding an extra attacking option to the selection that can immediately be there”, the Dane responds on the Feyenoord website. “Something that is very welcome in view of the upcoming, important season resumption and the ambitions we have for this season. Good for Feyenoord that we have been able to strengthen our selection for the rest of the season in this way.”
