Lille boss Marcelo Bielsa makes double signing from Sao Paulo - reports

Marcelo Bielsa
Marcelo Bielsa has added two new players, according to reports.

Lille are reported to have made the first signings of Marcelo Bielsa's reign, with Sao Paulo duo Luiz Araujo and Thiago Mendes joining the Ligue 1 club.

ESPN Brasil and Globo Esporte reported the players would cost a combined €18 million as Bielsa, appointed on a two-year deal last month, bids to improve on Lille's 11th-placed finish last season.

Luiz, a 20-year-old striker who recently signed a contract extension until 2021, had already been approached by Lille during the January transfer window.

Midfielder Thiago, 25, is also under contract until 2021 and has just returned from a lengthy layoff caused by a knee injury.
