Monaco Confirms Ghezzal Signing

Ligue 1 champions, Monaco have completed the signing of Algeria international Rachid Ghezzal for the next four years.

The winger scored 11 goals in 86 appearances for his youth club Lyon, before he was released in June.

He was courted by Premier League, La Liga and Serie A clubs, but Ghezzal has opted to remain in France with Monaco.

“I have the ambition to play at the highest national and international level, and the Monaco sporting project, which won the title and has reached the semi-finals of the Champions League, is fantastic,” he told the club’s official website.

“After several seasons in Lyon, I needed a new challenge. Everything is present here to make a great season. I cannot wait to meet my teammates and start training.”

Monaco vice-president Vadim Vasilyev said: “We welcome Rachid Ghezzal, whom we have been following for some time.

“He is a talented young player who knows our championship well but also has a solid experience in the Champions League. We believe a lot in Rachid.”
