It may be one of the most important transfers of the season for the A.S. Monaco: Wissam Ben Yedder, under contract with F.C. Seville, could join the Rock this summer for an amount of about 40 million euros. He is a talent who would further strengthen the Monegasque squad’s attacking line Monegasque, following the arrival of Henry Onyekuru this Monday.
Averaging nearly 0.5 goals per game during his three years in Spain with four caps for the French national team and one goal scored against Andorra in June, the player displays remarkable ease and decisiveness in the final thirty meters: at 29, Wissam Ben Yedder is building himself a solid career in Europe. Having hinted a few months ago that he wanted to change clubs, the former Toulouse Football Club winger could, according to L’Équipe, be transferred to A.S. Monaco as early as this week.
Other attackers on the way out?
According to the French press, there are two elements for bringing the operation to fruition: Ben Yedder will be sold against forty million euros and A.S. Monaco will disburse half of this sum and include Rony Lopes in the transaction. This would revolutionize the offensive third of the Principality’s club, especially as Radamel Falcao might leave in the coming days. It is up to Leonardo Jardim, in the case of a departure from Falco and Lopes, to reorganize his attack if both transfers play out. No doubt that with Wissam Ben Yedder and Henry Onyekuru (signed this week for fifteen million euros), the club’s offensive front should be particularly competitive this season!
