Monaco secures 'keeper Alvaro Fernandez Llorente from Osasuna


Ligue 1 holder Monaco's youth movement shows no signs of slowing, with the club announcing Tuesday that it has signed 19-year-old Spanish shot-stopper Alvaro Fernandez Llorente from Osasuna.

The principality side announced the move in a statement on its website, adding that Fernandez has put pen to paper on a three-year deal with the club.

Fernandez spent last year in the Osasuna reserves. He made his first-team debut in September 2016 as a second-half substitute for an injured Mario Fernandez in a 3-1 defeat to Villarreal.

The Arnedo-born shot-stopper becomes Monaco's sixth 'keeper, joining fellow summer signing Diego Benaglio, first-choice Danijel Subasic, Loic Badiashile, Seydou Sy, and Paul Nardi, who spent last season on loan at Cercle Brugge.
