Manchester United have been in touch with Sevilla striker Wissam Ben Yedder’s representatives over a possible move, according to reports.

A report a month ago said that the Red Devils ‘have everything agreed’ with Ben Yedder and have ‘almost total security’ that the striker will move to England.

Ben Yedder bagged 30 goals in 51 appearances last season as he managed to force himself into the international stage with France.

And now the Red Devils – who are looking for possible replacements for Romelu Lukaku if he leaves – ‘have contacted Ben  Yedder’s entourage’ over a potential transfer, according to Marca (via Sport Witness).

The report adds that United have yet to approach Sevilla over a possible deal with Lyon also speaking to the 28-year-old’s representatives.

Marca continued by saying that Ben Yedder – who recently turned down the chance to move to China – wants an exit and that Sevilla would want any suitors to pay his €40m (£36.6m) release clause.
