Gomis joins Marseille on season-long loan
Swansea striker Bafetimbi Gomis has joined French side Marseille on a season-long loan. The 30-year-old will return to Ligue 1 having begun his career at Saint-Etienne. He joined Swansea on a free transfer in 2014 following six years at Lyon. Gomis scored 17 goals in 71 games, but frequently flattered to deceive. The France international was expected to become a focal point in the Welsh club's attack when striker Wilfried Bony left to join Manchester City in January, 2015 but his form remained patchy.
PSG sign midfielder Giovani Lo Celso
Paris Saint-Germain have signed midfielder Giovani Lo Celso from Argentine club Rosario Central on a five-year deal. No financial details of the deal were given. The 20-year-old Lo Celso, who operates best as a playmaker behind the strikers, scored twice for Rosario last season. Before joining up with his new teammates, Lo Celso will play for Argentina at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics next month.
Aaron Leya Iseka joins Marseille on loan
Marseille have signed Aaron Leya Iseka, the younger brother of their departed striker Michy Batshuayi, on loan from Anderlecht. Belgium international Batshuayi left for Chelsea earlier this month for a reported €40m. And his 18-year-old sibling, known by their mother's surname, has made the temporary switch to help fill the void.
De Sanctis leaves Roma for Monaco
Monaco have announced the signing of goalkeeper Morgan De Sanctis on a one-year free transfer deal. The 39-year-old Italian international has spent the last three seasons at Roma, where he made almost 80 appearances. His contract in the Italian capital expired and was not renewed for another season. De Sanctis has alos spells with Juventus, Napoli, Sevilla and Galatasaray.
Sidibe moves to Monaco
Monaco have signed Djibril Sidibe from Lille on a five-year contract. The 23-year-old full-back started his professional career with Troyes, before joining Lille in 2012. He had since made over 100 appearances in all competitions for Lille. Sidibe has represented France at Under-21 level, but has yet to be capped at senior level. Sidibe becomes Monaco's fourth signing of the close-season, with Benjamin Mendy, Kamil Glik and Youssef Ait Bennasser previously joining the Stade Louis II club.
Mammana joins Lyon
Lyon have signed promising defender Emanuel Mammana from River Plate for €7.5 million. The 20-year-old has signed a five-year deal with the Ligue 1 outfit. Mammana came through the ranks of the River Plate youth academy and made his official first-team debut in October 2014. He becomes Lyon's third new arrival ahead of the 2016-17 campaign following the previous capture of Maciej Rybus and Nicolas N'Koulou.
Monaco sign Glik
Monaco have signed centre-back Kamil Glik from Torino in a deal believed to be worth €8m. The 28-year-old Poland international has signed a contract with his new club until June 2020, after helping his country to the quarter-finals of Euro 2016, where they were beaten on penalties by Portugal. Monaco have already signed Benjamin Mendy, Youssef Ait Bennasser and Miguel Veloso ahead of the new season.
PSG sign right back Thomas Meunier
Paris Saint-Germain have signed Belgium right back Thomas Meunier from Club Brugge on a four-year deal. Meunier was a bright spot for Belgium in its run to the Euro 2016 quarterfinals, where it fell to Wales. A presence in the attack, the 24-year-old Meunier was a stout defender in the Belgian top flight, where he had a league-best 88 interceptions. He becomes the third signing for new manager Unai Emery, after France's Hatem Ben Arfa and Poland's Grzegorz Krychowiak joined the capital club.
PSG complete signing of Grzegorz Krychowiak
Paris Saint-Germain have completed the singing of Poland international Grzegorz Krychowiak from Sevilla on a five-year deal for a fee in the region of €26m. Both clubs confirmed the deal on Sunday and the 26-year-old defensive midfielder, who started his career at Ligue 1 side Bordeaux, links up again with coach Unai Emery, who is now at the helm of PSG.
Ben Arfa signs for PSG
Unai Emery has made forward Hatem Ben Arfa his first signing as Paris St Germain boss. The 29-year-old France international has signed a two-year contract at the Parc des Princes after relaunching his faltering career with PSG's Ligue 1 rivals Nice last season. Ben Arfa's erratic spell in the Premier League, which began when he swapped Marseille for Tyneside in 2010, was effectively over as soon as he joined Hull on loan from Newcastle two years ago. After failing to make an impression at the KC Stadium, he was cut loose by the Magpies and returned to France to join Nice, scoring 17 goals as Les Aiglons finished fourth in Ligue 1 in 2015-16
Bennasser joins Monaco
Monaco have signed midfielder Youssef Ait Bennasser. After a solid first season at professional level with Nancy, where he helped the club achieve promotion to Ligue 1, the 19-year-old has committed to Monaco for the next five years. "Youssef had a standout season at Nancy and is one of the most promising talents in the French league in his position," said CEO Vadim Vasilyev. "He has arrived for the long term, and we have high hopes for him in the future."
St. Etienne sign Bryan Dabo
Saint Etienne have signed midfielder Bryan Dabo on a four-year contract. The 24-year-old makes the switch after nine years at Montpellier, where he came through the ranks. No terms of the deal were announced, but Dabo said on the St Etienne website: "Last season I could have left Montpellier for free, but I found that was not the honourable way to leave my first club so I decided to stay another year. The president of Montpellier made a commitment to me and he kept his word."
