Sporting CP deal for Granada’s Foulquier

Portuguese giants Sporting Lisbon are closing in on a €2.5m deal for Granada defender Dimitiri Foulquier, according to reports.

Marca cite a report in Portuguese sports paper A Bola which claims Os Leoes are on the verge of a deal for the Frenchman, who has spent four years at the Andalucian club.

The 24-year-old’s contract at El Grana runs until June 2019 and despite their relegation, they are set to make a profit on the defender they signed from Rennes for €2m outright in 2014 after a loan spell.

The former France Under 21 full-back made 92 appearances La Liga appearances but will become the third Spanish-based defender to join Sporting following Fabio Coentrao (Real Madrid)  and Jeremy Mathieu (Barcelona).
