Lyon, 19 June 2018
Olympique Lyonnais has announced the transfer to AS Monaco of U17 international Willem Geubbels for €20 million and an earn-out on a future transfer.
The young player joined the club at age nine and has received high-quality training from the Academy, which was just named best training centre in France for the sixth consecutive year and has produced such talented players as Houssem Aouar, Amine Gouiri, Myziane Maolida and Elisha Owusu, who signed their first professional contracts with Olympique Lyonnais.
Olympique Lyonnais regrets that the significant and exceptional efforts expended by the directors and trainers to enable Willem to make his professional debut and continue to grow with the club where he received his youth training went unanswered.
OL wishes the best of luck to Willem for the next stage of his career in Monaco.
