Managers are working hard trying to strengthen their squads during the summer transfer window so we’ll bring you all the latest news and gossip from around the globe. Today, Man Utd are pushing to sign Wissam Ben Yedder….
Manchester United have agreed personal terms with striker Wissam Ben Yedder ahead of a potential £35m move from Sevilla this summer, according to reports via the Express.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has already secured deals to sign winger Daniel James from Swansea while defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka completed his move from Crystal Palace over the weekend but the United boss is expected to make a number of further changes to his squad before the start of the new season.
A new striker could be on the agenda as Romelu Lukaku is being strongly linked with a move to Inter Milan after hinting earlier in the summer he wants a new challenge and Ben Yedder has emerged as a potential replacement.
Reports last week claimed United had identified the French international hitman as a prime transfer target and are prepared to meet his £35m release clause in order to take him to Old Trafford this summer.
The Express are now citing La Colina de Nervion as reporting that Man Utd have agreed personal terms with Ben Yedder and are in pole position to sign the striker ahead of the likes of PSG and Barcelona – who’ve also been linked in recent weeks.
The Spanish publication claims the 28-year-old striker is keen to move to the Premier League and they suggest United may even push through a £35m deal even if Lukaku ends up staying at the club.
We’ll have to wait and see how things progress over the coming days but Ben Yedder would be an exciting signing for Man Utd as he’s developed into one of the most productive attackers in Spanish football in recent years.
The Frenchman provided 30 goals and 11 assists in his 54 appearances in all competitions last season so he’d certainly add a much needed goal threat to the United attack if he does move to Old Trafford.
