Franco Damián Vázquez (born 22 February 1989) is a professional footballer who plays as an attacking midfielder for Spanish club Sevilla and the Argentina national team.

Beginning his career with Argentine club Belgrano in 2007, Vázquez moved to Italian side Palermo in 2011. After a brief loan spell in Spain with Rayo Vallecano during the 2012–13 season, he made his breakthrough with the Sicilian club, earning a transfer to La Liga side Sevilla in 2016.

On 16 July 2016, Vázquez returned to Spain’s top flight, joining Sevilla[12] for a reported €15 million transfer fee. On 9 August, in his first official appearance for his new club, he scored in a 3–2 extra-time defeat to Real Madrid in the 2016 UEFA Super Cup.
