Fresh approach for Toulouse forward

wissam-ben-yedder-3West Ham’s have been linked with a fresh approach for Toulouse forward Ben Yedder in a report in today’s Guardian.

The article claims West Ham sounded out Ben Yedder’s representative Meïssa N’Diaye once again after making an approach in January, with the 25-year-old former France Under-21 player thought to be available for €10m (£8.3m).

He has only one year left on his contract with Toulouse although  Leicester have also registered their interest in a player who scored 17 goals in Ligue 1 last season despite his club only just avoiding relegation. N’Diaye refused to comment when contacted by the Guardian on Monday.

Ben Yedder came to close to joining Sevilla in June before their new coach Jorge Sampaoli decided against completing the deal but they retain an interest and Yedder is also wanted by Roma, Lyon and Crystal Palace who have also scouted him in the past.

The Toulouse coach, Pascal Dupraz, appeared to invite any suitors to make their interest known, with the club hoping to complete a deal in the next week.

Dupraz told the French radio station RMC:.“I am astonished French clubs, including the largest, are not interested in him. In France, it is rare for a player to be able to do what he does in the area.”
