Willem Geubbels (21) has left AS Monaco to join Swiss Super League side FC Saint Gallen. The Frenchman has signed a deal until the summer of 2025.
Since arriving at the Principality club from Olympique Lyonnais for €20m in the summer of 2018, Geubbels has never managed to impose himself and push his way into the club’s plans. Once one of the most exciting young talents in Ligue 1, he has only played 17 games for Monaco, scoring just once.
Last season, he was loaned to FC Nantes where he played 26 times, scoring three times and registering one assist. Upon his return to Les Monégasques, Geubbels was injured and has spent much of his time this season training away from the group. He was then re-integrated into collective training during the recent World Cup break.
The Frenchman had just six months remaining on his deal at Monaco, and whilst the fee remains undisclosed, Foot Mercato have previously reported that Geubbels would leave on a free, although Monaco were hoping to obtain a percentage of any future sale. Sébastien Denis has since specified that Monaco have negotiated a 30% share of any future sale away from the Swiss club.
