Monaco signs Brazilian winger, loses Algerian Ghezzal

Brazilian winger Gabriel Boschilia has signed a new contract with AS Monaco until 2021, and will shortly be joining fellow Ligue 1 side Nantes on loan until the end of the season, according to Foot Mercato and L’Équipe.

Meanwhile, Leicester City completed the signing of Algeria winger Rachid Ghezzal from Monaco on Sunday, according to ESPN.


Leicester beat a number of other UK Premier League clubs, including Watford and Southampton, who had also been chasing the 26-year-old this summer. Ghezzal, who has made 13 caps for Algeria and played at last year’s African Nations Cup, signed a four-year-contract.

“I’m very excited and very happy to be here,” Ghezzal said. “I know the coach from Lyon and this is where I want to be. It’s a good club and an ambitious one too. Leicester City has many great players and I hope we will have a great season.”
