Manchester United may have finally gotten their transfer mojo rolling.

After securing Daniel James from Swansea City, the Red Devils have also agreed to a £50 million deal with Crystal Palace for the transfer of Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had made it clear that he’d like most of United’s transfers to be done by the time pre-season rolls around and this may be a fair indication of the same.

Now, with a winger and right-back secured, United primarily have a centre-back to fret about. However, with Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku also appearing exit-bound their replacements have to be purchased as well and the Premier League giants may have found one.

According to ABC Sevilla (via France Football), United are looking to purchase Wissam Ben Yedder from Sevilla. The 28-year-old striker is a Frenchman and Solskjaer is believed to be an admirer of his goal-scoring prolificacy.

However, the report does stress that Yedder will only be actively pursued in the event Lukaku departs.


Solskjaer Hoping To Sign Three More Players After Wan-Bissaka

The Belgian striker is believed to be on the wishlist at Inter Milan but United are reportedly quoting a high price upwards of £75million. United will have to activate Yedder’s £36 million release clause in the event of a transfer.

The same source also quotes the player himself to have stated: “I dream of playing at the highest level, in the biggest clubs in the world and being next to world-class players. I want to see how far I can go and it is the right time (to leave), as they say. I cannot be disrespectful to the club, whatever the final decision, I’ll be fine, I’m not worried about my future. I will take stock after the international fixtures, but it will also be Sevilla who decide.”

Is he the apt replacement for Lukaku at Old Trafford?
