Lyon have completed their fourth signing of the summer with the acquisition of Real Madrid forward Mariano Diaz, the Ligue 1 club have announced.
The club announced the news via Twitter.
The 23-year-old Dominican Republic international had been a fringe player for Real for some time, earning most of his minutes with the B team. He flashed his talent in the Copa del Rey win over Cultural y Deportiva Leonesa last season, scoring a hat-trick in the second leg of the tie, but didn’t see an increase in playing time afterward.
Along with Chelsea’s Traore and Mariano, Lyon have already completed deals for Fernando Marcal and Ferland Mendy, two full-backs.
