Arsenal line up offer for Toulouse striker – report

Arsenal are chasing Toulouse striker Wissam Ben Yedder, according to reports in France

Arsenal are interested in signing Toulouse striker Wissam Ben Yedder, according to reports in France.

Canal +’s African expert Ludo Deroin – as quoted by Get French Football News – has claimed that Yedder is set to complete a move to Premier League giants Arsenal or La Liga side Sevilla in the coming days.

The same story claims that Ligue 1 side Toulouse are looking for an offer in the region of £8m for the 25-year-old centre-forward, who scored 17 times in 35 Ligue 1 appearances last season.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has been linked with a number of players in the summer transfer window, although the Gunners boss has only completed three deals so far.

Granit Xhaka completed a £33m transfer to Arsenal from Bundesliga side Borussia Monchengladbach in May ahead of this summer’s European championship.

Arsenal have since signed Japanese forward Takuma Asano and defender Rob Holding from Bolton Wanderers.
