Leicester City Confirm Signing Of Rachid Ghezzal

Leicester City have confirmed the signing of Rachid Ghezzal.

The Monaco winger passed a medical in Leicester on Friday with the deal concluded over the weekend as he becomes Claude Puel's fifth signing of the summer.

“I'm very excited and very happy to be here,” said the skilful winger, who was a youth-team player at Lyon when Puel was in charge.

“Leicester City has many great players and I hope we will have a great season.”

City will hope Ghezzal will able to help share the creative load following the departure of Riyad Mahrez to Man City this summer.

Ghezzal's best season came for Lyon in 2015/16 where he amassed eight goals and eight assists to help Lyon finish second in Ligue 1.

Ghezzal has made 13 appearances for Algeria, netting one goal, and playing a part in their Africa Cup of Nations campaign in 2017.
