AS Monaco is pleased to announce the signing of Fodé Ballo-Touré from Lille. The defender joins until June 2023.
Born on 3 January 1997, the left-back trained at Paris Saint-Germain with whom he reached the Youth League 2016 final, and he made his professional debut at Lille OSC last season.
A potential future French international at age 22, he has nearly 50 games in the top flight in which he has demonstrated defensive qualities and a promising offensive impact.
Welcome to Fodé Ballo-Touré at AS Monaco. He is a talented young player who, like his team, had a good first half of the season and will continue to improve.
His arrival, along with that of Naldo, should allow to intensify the competition and thus strengthen the workforce.
I was quickly convinced by the AS Monaco project and the prospect of working with Thierry Henry. I am eager to learn from him, his experience, his knowledge, but also to meet my new teammates to get into the thick of it.
