Fares Bahlouli - a central attacking midfielder who came through the academy system at OL – will link up with fellow AS Monaco recruit Thomas Lemar, after the two young players won the Toulon Tournament a few weeks ago with the French U20 side, as well as Anthony Martial, a member of the same generation (class of 1995) who also learned his trade at Olympique Lyonnais.
”I’m delighted to be joining AS Monaco. This is a club that’s building a great project by putting faith in young players. I’m looking forward to meeting up with my new teammates. I already know some of them, like Anthony Martial with whom I started out at youth level.”
Vadim Vasilyev, Vice-President & CEO: ”Fares will have the opportunity to demonstrate all the talent that people have seen in him since he was a youngster. We hope he will progress under Leonardo Jardim’s guidance and realise his promise.”
