Liverpool eyeing move for £35m-rated Ligue 1 striker

By | July 4, 2020

Five of the Premier League teams are reportedly among the clubs weighing up a summer move for AS Monaco striker Wissam Ben Yedder when the transfer window will be re-opened in the summer.

The 29-year-old has shone for French giants this campaign, directly being involved in 25 goals in 26 Ligue 1 games, finding the back of the net 18 times himself while providing seven assists to his teammates.

A host of Europe’s top teams have subsequently been credited with a strong interest in Ben Yedder, who could cost around £40m this summer.

L’Equipe reports that Arsenal, Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur and Man Utd are all keeping tabs on the French forward.

However, the Premier League heavyweights also face stiff competition from elsewhere, with Valencia Atletico Madrid and Rela Madrid reportedly eager to bring the Frenchman back in La Liga, where he played for Sevilla for three years.

Barcelona have also previously attempted to secure his services, although the Spanish giants are not believed to currently be in the running for his services.

Ben Yedder joined Ligue 1 giants AS Monaco back in a £35m deal last summer, off the back of a season in which he has found back of the net 30 times across all competitions for La Liga outfits Sevilla.
