AFP , Wednesday 1 Jul 2015

Monaco have signed France under-20 international Fares Bahlouli from Ligue 1 rivals Lyon on a five-year deal, the principality club announced on Tuesday.

The attacking midfielder, considered one of the brightest talents to come out of Lyon's productive academy, moved for a fee of €3.5 million, according to sources close to the deal.

Bahlouli has made just nine top-flight appearances for Lyon but was part of the France under-20 side that won the recent Toulon Tournament.
