Tottenham are showing strong interest in Wissam Ben Yedder.
The latest reports in England suggest that Tottenham have joined the hunt for AS Monaco striker Wissam Ben Yedder.
The 29-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
The France international was signed by Monaco in August 2019 from Sevilla for a fee of 40 million euros. The 29-year-old has a contract until 2024 with the club.
Ben Yedder has played 31 times for Monaco since signing from Sevilla, scoring 19 goals and creating 9 assists in that time.
The 29-year-old is considered to be one of the best strikers in France. As a member of France national football team, Ben Yedder won 8 caps and he scored 2 goals.
His performances have seen him become the target of many European clubs including Tottenham.
Ben Yedder is widely regarded as a key transfer target for Tottenham this summer.
The Tottenham manager has kept an eye on Ben Yedder for the last 12 months and he is impressed with the striker’s performances.
Spurs are desperate to make an impact in the summer transfer window.
Wissam Ben Yedder is a traditional number nine, having all types of finishes in his locker.
According to the report, “Tottenham are eyeing AS Monaco striker Wissam Ben Yedder. L’Equipe says Tottenham have joined the race to sign Ben Yedder. The Frenchman has scored 18 league goals this season, making him the joint top-scorer in the Ligue 1 alongside Kylian Mbappe. But Monaco find themselves cash-strapped and are prepared to sell Ben Yedder this summer to the highest bidder. The striker has also been linked with Barcelona this week.”
