Tottenham Hotspur have joined the race to sign Wissam Ben Yedder and Daniel Levy will face competition from major Premier League rivals, according to L’Equipe.
Five of English football’s biggest clubs including the likes of Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester City and Manchester United are all in the running to land the Monaco striker.
After arriving at the Stade Louis II from Sevilla FC for £36m last August, the 29-year-old has scored 18 goals in 25 starts in Ligue 1 this season, taking 2.5 shots per game, averaging 1.7 key passes, and successfully completing 1.3 dribbles via WhoScored.
Spurs boss Jose Mourinho is in the market to find a backup for Harry Kane after the England international was hit by a hamstring injury, and Ben Yedder could be the perfect solution, although it is highly likely the Tottenham chairman will have a transfer battle on his hands in the summer.
Popular fan page @TranSPURS shared the news on Twitter, prompting lots of replies from the THFC faithful. One fan suggested the Frenchman would make a “perfect link with Sissoko.”
Take a look at some of the mixed reactions down below…
