The 16-year-old France U-17 International was signed for €20m (around $23m). 
He made two appearances for Lyon last season and became the youngest player to appear in a Europa League match and has also scored 12 goals in 21 games for France from the youth level to U-18. He is also the first player born in the 21st century to play in Ligue 1.

Geubbels is a product of Lyon’s successful youth system.
He added: “I am very happy to sign at AS Monaco. It is a historic club that plays in the Champions League and plays the leading roles every year in Ligue 1.”
