Sevilla sign Ligue 1 stars Kounde, Ocampos

Sevilla announced the club-record signing of French defender Jules Kounde from Bordeaux and the arrival of Marseille winger Lucas Ocampos on Wednesday.

Kounde has agreed a five-year contract with Sevilla, who will pay 25 million euros ($28.2 million), according to reports in Spain.

An official club statement read: "The defender, who arrived yesterday night in Seville, passed a medical in the morning before signing a contract with his new team until 2024."

The 20-year-old, who can also play at full-back, played 55 Ligue 1 matches for Bordeaux after making his first-team debut in January last year and has represented France at under-20 level.

Argentinian Ocampos, who originally joined Marseille on loan from Monaco in 2015, signed for a reported fee of 15 million euros, also on a five-year deal.

The 24-year-old scored 16 Ligue 1 goals for Marseille.

The arrivals also continued a busy summer for Sevilla, who have now signed six players since the return of Monchi as sporting director and ahead of Julen Lopetegui's first season as coach.

The club, who finished sixth in Liga last season, had already bought Luuk de Jong as well as Munas Dabbur, Diego Carlos and Joan Jordan.
