Lyon wrap up signing of Guingamp midfielder Claudio Beauvue

Lyon have sealed the signing of exciting attacking midfielder Claudio Beauvue from Guingamp.

Beauvue, 27, completed a medical before putting pen to paper on a four-year deal at OL.

They have paid a reported €5.5 million for Beauvue, who scored 27 goals in all competitions for Guingamp last season, and he will link him up with last season's Ligue 1 leading scorer, Alexandre Lacazette, in what could prove a fruitful partnership.

"I'm very proud to be here," Beauvue, who played for Chateauroux and Troyes before coming to prominence in Brittany, told Lyon's official website. "It will be an honour to be part of this great club. I was looking forward to it, so it's a great source of satisfaction.

"I'm looking forward to great collective and individual performances this season. It's very exciting to imagine playing alongside Alexandre Lacazette."
