2nd coup in Monaco. A few days after formalizing the arrival of Takumi Minamino from Liverpool, the princely club announced the transfer of a second attacking reinforcement in the person of Breel Embolo. The Swiss international arrives from Borussia Mönchengladbach for the sum of 12.5 M€, information that we were able to reveal exclusively here.
“AS Monaco is pleased to announce the arrival of Breel Embolo. The 25-year-old Swiss international has signed up for the next four seasons with Club du Rocher. informs the ASM in its official press release. .
Embolo toughens up the competition
This transfer was facilitated by the attacker’s contractual situation. Arrived in 2019 in Gladbach from Schalke 04, the 25-year-old player had still not extended a contract ending in 2023. Faced with this observation, the German club was easily going to a departure. Embolo, however, remained on a good end to the season, scoring 7 goals in the last 11 league games.

The presence of the Swiss will bring even more depth and solutions to Philippe Clément and his staff.
