Official | AS Monaco land defensive midfielder Soualiho Meïté for €8m

AS Monaco have made yet another signing, this time Zulte Waregem midfielder Soualiho Meïté – who joins the champions on a 5-year-deal.

The 23-year-old defensive-midfielder has been earning his trade in Belgium’s top flight division and was certainly a vital part of his club’s third place finish last season. Meïté made 30 league appearances for Zulte Waragem, scoring once, and assisting once. He has also featured with the French national side at U16 through to U20 level.

The Frenchman is naturally a defensive-midfielder, and could be thrown in the deep end with the first team if the likes of Fabinho or Bakayoko left the club this summer.
