Celta close in on Beauvue

Celta Vigo are closing in on the signing of Lyon striker Claudio Beauvue for a reported €5m.

According to the Galicians’ website, the 27-year-old is only a medical and formalities away from putting pen to paper on a contract.

The Guadeloupian was spotted at Balaidos on Sunday as he watched the second half of his new team’s 4-3 victory over Levante.

Beauvue came to international attention last season, when he scored 27 goals for Ligue 1 side Guingamp.

He then earned a high-profile move to Lyon but moves on after only six months and eight strikes in 28 appearances.
