Western Sydney Wanderers have announced the signing of Argentine attacker Nicolas Martinez as the club's marquee player 2016-17 season.

The Wanderers have signed the 28-year-old on a one season loan from Greek club, Olympiacos.

He joined Olympiacos last season, but was sent on loan to Anorthosis Famagusta. He has previously has stints in Spain, Chile and Argentina.

Martinez said a big reason for joining the club was the influence of coach Tony Popovic.

“I spoke with the coach and after that my decision was clear”, Martinez said.

“I know that in 2014 they won the AFC Champions League and last season were only one point off first place. I come to a great team – one of the best in Australia.

“I'm very happy. After a long wait it's happened and now I'm focusing on working with the team. I would like to try and help the team and to achieve the most that we can.”

Martinez will wear the No.10 jersey.
