Official | Jonathan Ikoné has joined Lille from PSG for €5m

Lille have today completed the signing of young midfielder Jonathan Ikoné from Paris Saint-Germain.

The 20-year-old, who had spent the last season and a half on loan at Montpellier, scoring 2 goals in 29 appearances, moves to the Stade Pierre-Mauroy for a reported €5m fee.

Ikoné, whose contract at the Ligue 1 champions was due to expire in 2019, initially made his debut in 2016 in the Champions League against Ludogorets, just two months after signing his first professional contract with the club.

The versatile forward, who was born in France and is of Congolese descent, will be hoping to earn a similarly favourable level of playing time under new manager Christophe Galtier as he received in his most recent loan spell in the south of France.
