AS Monaco are delighted to announce the arrival of defender Wilfried Singo from Torino Football Club. The 22-year-old Ivorian international has signed a five-year contract and is now linked to the club until June 2028.
Trained in the Côte d’Ivoire at AS Denguélé, Wilfried Singo joined Torino Football Club in the winter of 2019. He first played with the U19 team, Torino Primavera, with whom he played 31 games (3 goals, 3 assists).
98 Serie A games at the age of 22
His progress enabled him to join the first team during the offseason, and he played his first professional match on 1 August 2019, in the second qualifying round of the Europa League, in a 4-1 win against Hungarian club Debreceni Vasutas Sport Club. In the 2020-2021 season, the 1.90m defender made his mark with Torino FC. He played 28 games, scoring once and providing 3 assists.
A central defender, who is also capable of playing as a right back, his playing time increased steadily over the next two seasons (2021-2022 and 2022-2023), during which time he played his part in Torino’s run to 10th place in Serie A at the end of those two years. A physical and technical defender with a good sense of anticipation, Wilfried Singo made 109 appearances for Torino FC, including 98 in Serie A, scoring seven goals and providing 10 assists.
An Ivorian international
His performances in the Italian league have been noticed in Côte d’Ivoire. After playing for the U-20 national team, Wilfried Singo took part in the Tokyo Olympic Games in 2021, where he started four matches. During the competition, he helped the Ivorians to good results against Germany and Brazil, and to reach the quarterfinals of the competition.
Coach Patrice Beaumelle handed him his first senior cap on 5 June 2021 in a 2-1 win over Burkina Faso. Since then, Wilfried has played six more games for Les Éléphants, winning five and drawing once.
AS Monaco wished him every success in La Diagonale!
