All the wheeling and dealing of summer has finally come to an end.  Now that the dust has settled, AS Monaco have eleven new faces and renewed vigour. Acquisition of new team members cost roughly €133 million, and sales of outgoing players hit the mark at €106 million.

The Red and Whites rebooted offense includes new members Wissam Ben Yedder, Gelson Martins and Henry Onyekuri, as well as powerhouse Islam Slimani and Jean-Kevin Augustin, who are on loan for the season.

Defence saw the arrival of Ruben Aguilar and two last minute additions, Guillermo Maripan and Arthur Zagré. Great news for a defence that had not been holding together well, but as they are still untested as a team, there may still be work to be done. 

The midfield scored two last minute players, both on loan. Tiémoué Bakayoko and Adrien Silva have been pegged to beef up the team’s weakest link. 

Finally, Monaco sees the arrival of top-drawer goalkeeper Benjamin Lecomte. The French International goalie is a welcome sight for the team, who keenly felt the loss of his successor Danijel Subatic.  

AS Monaco now may be poised to regain mojo and be the contenders they can be.
