AS Monaco have completed the signing of Chilean defender Guillermo Maripán from Alavés.
The giant 25-year-old, who stands 1.93m tall, has signed a five-year deal at the Stade Louis II as the principality club continue their squad strengthening. Reports put the fee paid at €18 million.
Maripán's arrival follows the signings of Montpellier Hérault SC duo Benjaim Lecomte and Rubén Águilar, and attacking pair Wissam Ben Yedder and Henry Onyekuru, signed from Sevilla and Everton respectively.
In addition, Monaco have recruited both Islam Slimani and Adrien Silva on loan from Leicester City, with the latter returning for a second spell after spending the second half of last season on loan at the club.
Maripán helped Basque side Alavés finish 11th in La Liga last season. He moved to Spanish football from Santiago giants Universidad Católica in 2017. He was part of the Chile side that reached the semi-finals of the Copa América last month.
