Monaco added Malaga’s Jeremy Toulalan to their ranks as newly promoted club continue to try and create a side capable of challenging for silverware.

The 29-year-old has agreed to make the switch from La Liga to Ligue 1, putting pen-to-paper on a two-year deal.

Toulalan is set to be presented by the principality outfit on Monday and will join the likes of Radamel Falcao, Ricardo Carvalho, James Rodriguez and Joao Mountinho as new arrivals.

Russian owner Dmitry Rybolovlev has wasted no time at all in digging deep into his pockets to try and strengthen the squad as they aim to take the French top-flight by storm.

In contrast, Malaga have been struggling to keep their head above water financially for some time and the France international is the latest to be moved on in order to help try and stabilise the club.

Spain under-21 star Isco has already agreed a move to Real Madrid for a fee in the region of £25million and Argentine defender Martin Demichelis is on the verge heading to his homeland and linking up with River Plate, where he spent some of his youth career.

Monaco sporting director Vadim Vasilyev said on his club’s website:

“We are happy with the signature of Jeremy. His skills, his European and international experience, will be an important asset for our team this season.”
