Man United plotting summer bid for 26-goals Sevilla key striker

Manchester United are reportedly eyeing a summer swoop for Sevilla forward Wissam Ben Yedder.

Ben Yedder joined Sevilla from Toulouse in the summer of 2016, and the Frenchman has scored 66 times in 126 appearances for his Spanish club in all competitions.

This season, the 28-year-old has struck 26 times in 42 appearances for his La Liga side, including seven in seven Europa League matches.

According to Calciomercato, Ben Yedder’s impressive form has attracted the attention of United, who could make a move in this summer’s transfer window.

The forward scored twice at Old Trafford last season to send the Red Devils out of the Champions League in the round of 16.

Alongside Ben Yedder, the Red Devils are also desperate to sign Sporting Lisbon star Bruno Fernandes.

The 24-year-old has 23 goals and 13 assists for the Portuguese giants this season, leading to speculation that he is wanted by Liverpool, Man United, Atletico Madrid and AC Milan.

According to a report carried by The Mirror, though, Liverpool are trying to get to Fernandes’s signature first.

Sporting vice president Francisco Salgado Zenha has admitted that his side desperately need to raise some cash, so they may be forced to sell the Portugal international for less than his £86m release clause.
