Monaco agree €40m deal for Ben Yedder

He was linked with Manchester United, but that was never realistic. Now, he is very close to moving to France. Monaco have agreed a 40m deal to sign Wissam Ben Yedder from Sevilla. According to L’Equipe, the 29-year-old striker is close to swapping La Liga for Ligue 1, as Monaco are trying to drastically improve on their horrific 2018-19 season.

The French diary claims that the Israeli striker has agreed a five-year contract at Stade Louis II, which should keep him at the club until June 2024. However, the deal is not as simple as it seems, as Rony Lopes is expected to move the other way round, as part of the swap deal. Monaco are so keen to get their man, even to let 23-year-old attacking midfielder to leave the club.

Ben-Yedder has scored 70 goals in 138 appearances for Sevilla during his three years at the club, but it looks like he could be moving to a new challenge.
