English giant Tottenham are mauling a move for AS Monaco striker Wissam Ben Yedder. The French international has been impressive since joining from Sevilla in the summer and has courted attention from overseas.
Ben Yedder us currently the joint top-scorer in Ligue 1 this season alongside French wonderkid Julian Mbappe on 18 goals.
Spurs have struggled this season and the lack of a replacement forward for Harry Kane has proven disastrous.
Tottenham Manager Jose Mourinho has previously stated his need for a backup striker and Ben Yedder fits the bill.
French tabloid L’Equipe claims that the battle for the striker heats up with Barcelona and Inter Milan monitoring his situation.
Monaco could be forced to sell as club insiders have stayed that the club is cash strapped. Ben Yedder at 29 years offers a good value for the club to sell.
This transfer is one that is likely to continue making the rounds in the coming weeks.
