French side Monaco have completed the signing of Algerian winger Rachid Ghezzal on a free transfer, the club confirmed on Monday.

The Algerian international penned a four-year deal with the defending Ligue 1 Champions that would link him with the club until the summer of 2021.

The 25-year-old’s contract with Lyon ended at the end of June, leaving the winger a free agent during the summer transfer window.

He was linked to a move to several clubs such as Zenit, Celta Vigo, Milan, Southampton and Everton, who all showed interest in the player, but in the end he opted to stay in the Ligue 1.

Ghezzal was a regular starter in Lyon's squad last season, scoring twice in 26 Ligue 1 appearances.
