Manchester United are lining up a bid to sign Wissam Ben Yedder from Sevilla this summer, according to reports in Spain.

The Sun is citing unnamed sources in Spain claiming that the Red Devils are keen on a deal to bring Ben Yedder to the Premier League this summer as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer begins to think about bolstering his squad.

Ben Yedder, 28, has been in fine form for Sevilla so far this season and has scored 24 goals and made six assists in all competitions for the Spanish club this term.

According to the same report, Ben Yedder has emerged as a target for Manchester United this summer as Alexis Sanchez struggles to find consistent form.

The same article says that Ben Yedder has attracted interest from the likes of Arsenal and Tottenham in recent years, but a move to Old Trafford is now looking more likely.

Manchester United are likely to be keen to land a number of players this summer, with Solskjaer widely tipped to be appointed as the club’s new permanent manager.

The Red Devils will return to FA Cup action on Saturday night when they travel to Wolves in the quarter-finals, looking to bounce back from their 2-0 loss to Arsenal in the Premier League last weekend.
