Monaco confirm Rachid Ghezzal signing

Monaco have completed the signing of free agent Rachid Ghezzal, who joins the reigning French champions on a four-year deal.

The 25-year-old left Lyon at the end of his contract earlier this summer, and despite being linked with a move to the Premier League, was unveiled as a Monaco player on Monday after completing a medical.

“I had the ambition of playing at the highest level, nationally and internationally, and the sporting project of Monaco — who hold the title and who reached the semifinals of the Champions League – is fantastic,” Ghezzal told the club’s official website.

“After several seasons at Lyon, I needed a new challenge,” he added. “Everything has come together here for us to have a great season.

“I can’t wait to meet my teammates and to begin training.”

The Algeria international made 25 appearances for Lyon last term, scoring two goals and contributing two assists.

Zenit St Petersburg, Celta Vigo and Nice had all made offers for Ghezzal this summer, before he ultimately opted to join Leonardo Jardim’s side.

Ghezzal will be charged with helping the Monegasques overcome the loss of Bernardo Silva, while Kylian Mbappe’s future remains uncertain as he continues to be linked with the exit door.

The forward broke into the Lyon team during the 2012-13 season, but enjoyed his best campaign in the 2015-16 season when he scored eight goals in 29 Ligue 1 outings.

He made his Algeria debut in 2015, and was a member of theFennecs squad that was eliminated in the first round of the Africa Cup of Nations earlier this year.

“[Ghezzal] is a talented young player who knows the league well and who can also call upon a solid experience of the European Cup,” added Monaco’s vice-president Vadim Vasilyev. “We have a lot of faith in Rachid and in his abilities to go to a new level at Monaco.”
