As announced by the German side today, Angers midfielder Angelo Fulgini (25) has signed a 4-year deal at FC Mainz 05 after spending 5 years in Ligue 1 as SCO’s number 10.
After Rangers had multiple bids turned down for Fulgini this month, the Ivorian-French born midfielder will play in the Bundesliga next season. It was reported that the player was not involved in Angers’ pre-season camp at the île-de-Ré last week – with the club accepting the inevitability of the transfer.
In January, the former Valenciennes man was close to signing for fellow German outfit Borussia Mönchengladbach, who also reignited their interest in the player in recent weeks. Fulgini has made a total of 149 appearances in Ligue 1, scoring 20 goals and providing 15 assists from midfield – as well as also being able to play deep and on the right wing. The 25-year old has also played for the French U21 team with 3 caps to the right-footed Abidjan-born attacker.
