English Premier League side, Chelsea, have completed the signing of France international defender, Axel Disasi from Monaco on a six-year deal for 45m euros (£38.5m).
The 25-year-old will provide cover at Stamford Bridge after Wesley Fofana sustained a serious knee injury.
He was part of the France squad to the 2022 FIFA World Cup and played in all 38 of Monaco’s Ligue 1 games last season.
Disasi becomes Chelsea’s sixth signing of the summer following the acquisitions of Christopher Nkunku, Nicolas Jackson, Lesley Ugochukwu, Angelo Gabriel and Diego Moreira.
However, the former European champions are yet to make a headway in their pursuit of Brighton midfielder, Moises Caicedo, with several bids rejected by the Seagulls.
