Football: Wilfried Singo joins AS Monaco from Serie A side Torino

Wilfried Singo signing announcement

AS Monaco have confirmed the signing of Wilfried Singo. The Ivory Coast international joins from FC Torino and has put pen to paper on a five-year deal. 

Monaco have completed their fourth signing of the summer. Denis Zakaria joined earlier this week, and his signing followed the arrivals of Philipp Köhn and Mohammed Salisu earlier this summer.

Singo will compete with Vanderson at right-wing-back, however, with the Brazilian looking to push on this season, the Cameroonian international could see plenty of gametime filling in at RCB, especially if Adi Hütter continues to deploy a 3-4-3 formation.

An uncertain future for Ruben Aguilar?

Ruben Aguilar’s future at the Principality club may now be called into question, following Singo’s arrival. The Frenchman is backup to Vanderson, but he now looks to have been pushed further down the pecking order. A return to former club Montpellier HSC is on the cards.

It is now up to Singo, who has grown in stature during his time in Serie A, to impose himself with Les Monégasques. “I’m very happy to be at AS Monaco. I am happy to be a part of a new family, and I hope that we’ll go far together,” he said on the club’s media channels.

As Monaco return to the Stade Louis II for the first time this season, Zakaria and Singo could both be in line to make their debuts for the club.
