First capped by Los Pumas in 2014, the 28-year-old has since become a key member of the Argentina pack, earning 61 caps and representing his country at the 2015 and 2019 Rugby World Cups.

Gloucester head coach George Skivington said he was a "fantastic addition" to the squad.

"He brings a lot of the attributes we've been looking for in that area and we think he can continue to develop with us and complement players we already have in the squad," he said.

"He's a physical and abrasive player, and his style of play will really suit the Premiership."
