However, a knee injury suffered in March 2017 saw him play in just four matches for the club after recovering.
Funes Mori was included in Jorge Sampaoli's preliminary World Cup squad list but missed out when the team was cut to 23 for the finals in Russia.
He has made 19 appearances for his country, scoring one goal.
