Sevilla striker Wissam Ben Yedder set for Monaco

Monaco have made an offer of €20m plus Rony Lopes in order to sign Sevilla striker Wissam Ben Yedder, according to reports.

Diario de Sevilla furthers upon a report in L’Equipe that the offer has been made, but the Andalusian club want the value of any deal to rise by a further €10m.

Last month, Marca cited a report in L’Equipe that Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain have both made contact with the player’s agent over a potential move - who has a €40m release clause.

This has led the France international to reject a move to Beijing Synobo Guoan which would have seen him earn a whopping €1m per month.

The 28-year-old has recently told reporters that he will consider a transfer this summer while last month, Diario AS cited a report from Soccerlink.fr that there has already been contact from Paris Saint-Germain.

ABC de Sevilla then cited a report in France Football outlining United’s intention of landing the striker, who would theoretically replace Romelu Lukaku - who is in talks to join Italian club Inter.

The striker joined Los Rojiblancos from Toulouse in 2016 in a €9m deal and has scored 70 goals across all competitions in the time since.

Ben Yedder netted twice in Sevilla’s famous Champions League Round of 16 victory against Manchester United a season ago – to qualify the club for their first quarter-final of the competition in six decades.
