Monaco have bolstered their squad with the signing of Barcelona teenager Robert Navarro as the Ligue 1 club continue to focus on young talent.

The 16-year-old attacking midfielder, who has played for Spain at youth level, is described by Monaco as "a great hope of his generation".

Navarro follows Monaco's signing of Willem Geubbels, a France Under-17 international who joined in a €20 million (£18m/$23m) deal from Lyon last month.

"Monaco are a great club that relies heavily on its training and gives young people the chance to express themselves at the highest level," Navarro said.

"My goal is to work hard to move forward and take new steps."

Monaco are keen to get themselves back on  the track with the acquisition of talented youth after seeing multiple stars depart the club over the past two seasons..
