Borussia Dortmund have completed the signing of Portuguese international and EURO 2016 participant Raphaël Guerreiro ahead of the new season. The 22-year old left defender has been awarded a four-year contract running until 30 June 2020.
“Raphaël Guerreiro is a skillful player who feels at home in a wide range of positions,” said BVB sporting director Michael Zorc.
Guerreiro possesses both Portuguese and French citizenship and moves to Dortmund on 1 July 2016 from Football Club Lorient-Bretagne Sud, with whom he has spent the last three seasons.
Equally at home on the left side of defense or attack, Guerreiro appeared in 34 of FC Lorient’s 38 Ligue 1 matches last season and has seven international caps and two goals for Portugal – the country of his father – to his name. In total, he made 102 appearances for Lorient, scoring ten goals.
