AS Monaco have continued to conduct canny business in the transfer window amidst an exodus of key players, signing Lazio forward Keita Balde for €30 million.
The Senegal international has signed a five-year contract with the Ligue 1 champions after completing his medical.
“I’m very happy to be signing for AS Monaco, a club with a great history,” Balde told the club’s official website.
“It’s the ideal project for me. I’m very happy to be joining a strong squad, with big players who had a brilliant season last year.”
Keita Balde was one of Serie A’s most potent forwards last term, netting 16 league goals from 31 appearances, registering him as Lazio’s second top-scorer behind Ciro Immobile.
He joins a completely reshuffled AS Monaco side that includes the likes of Stevan Jovetic, Rachid Ghezzal and Adama Diakhaby in a new-look strike force.
