Geoffrey Kondogbia completes Monaco move

Monaco take their summer spending towards £150m with the signing of Sevilla's powerful 20-year-old midfielder Geoffrey Kondogbia.

Big-spending Monaco have continued their summer business with the €20m (£17.2m) capture of Sevilla midfielder Geoffrey Kondogbia.

The French outfit, promoted to Ligue 1 last season, have already brought in £130m worth of talent in a bid to rival reigning champions Paris Saint-Germain for the domestic title.

Kondogbia had previously been linked with a move to Arsenal or Real Madrid, who had both apparently been impressed by his powerful performances in Spain last season.

After Monaco triggered the termination clause in the 20-year-old's contract, Kondogbia has signed a five-year deal at Stade Louis II and joins other high-profile signings Radamel Falcao, James Rodriguez and Joao Moutinho in Claudio Ranieri's squad.

The once-capped France international spent just one season at Sevilla after joining them from Lens in 2012.
