Toulouse forward Wissam Ben Yedder has joined Sevilla.

Ben Yedder had reportedly been a target for Arsenal, as well as subject to interest from Tottenham and West Ham.

Yet stories later suggested that Ben Yedder would join either Arsenal or Sevilla, and the Spanish club have now made their move.

Ben Yedder will follow Luciano Vietto, who has joined on loan, with Kevin Gameiro sold to Atletico Madrid.

Only Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Alexandre Lacazette have scored more times than Ben Yedder over the last three seasons. That’s despite Toulouse regularly flirting with relegation.

West Ham reportedly had doubts about Ben Yedder’s size, while the rumoured Arsenal interest never really amounted to anything concrete.

Sevilla’s official Twitter feed announced that Ben Yedder will have a medical on Saturday evening, and has signed a five-year deal.
