Federico Fazio has recently been praised as one of the best young defenders in European football at the moment. The player, from Argentina, is currently playing for Sevilla and has already made his way into the first-team, despite his tender age of 21.

Federico Fazio has a stunning ability in the air, and at 6 foot 5, he uses that height to his advantage.

The player is actually one of the top 10 most tallest players in La Liga. Fazio is now fully integrated into the starting XI at Sevilla.

Fazio has represented Argentina at all levels, including the full international side.

Fazio joined Sevilla from Ferro back in January 2007, and progressed into the first-team after injuries to French defender Julien Escude.

So impressive has the form of the player been, that Arsene Wenger's side Arsenal have apparently tabled bids for the youngster.

Argentina national team coach Diego Maradona is believed to be a huge admirer of the player, and he is expected to call up Fazio for the first-team more often in the coming months.

Valued by many in the region of 9 million GBP already, the player is likely to stay at Sevilla for a while after only recently signing a new contract.

Fazio is not just sensational in the air, but great on the ground and very mobile for such a big player. His tackling abilities are some of the best many have seen.
