Mercato – Monaco: Wissam Ben Yedder, the surprise track for PSG?
Author of six goals in Ligue 1 since the start of the season, Wissam Ben Yedder would attract the lust of PSG in the transfer window.
This is not the first time that the captain of AS Monaco has been associated with Paris Saint-Germain in the transfer window. But the timing is very unexpected this time, because the French international is clearly not in the shape of his life despite honorable statistics in Ligue 1 (six goals since the start of the season). According to the information from the Fichajes.net site, the ASM captain would be in the sights of PSG and more precisely of Mauricio Pochettino, who appreciates his profile of super replacement, very effective each time he comes into play with ASM. The Paris SG coach would prefer, for example, the style of Wissam Ben Yedder to that of Mauro Icardi, who has much less the profile of a supersub.

Indeed, the club of the Principality has no intention of letting slip its international tricolor, under contract with Monaco until June 2024. Recruited for the tidy sum of 40 million euros from Sevilla FC there is two years, does Wissam Ben Yedder have the will to leave? Difficult to know but obviously, an offer from Paris Saint-Germain reflect it. It now remains to calculate on the side of PSG if financially, the game is worth the candle because Wissam Ben Yedder already has a very large salary in Monaco. Anyway, no transfer will take place before the winter transfer window, and probably not even before the next summer transfer window. Because no matter what PSG offers, it is hard to imagine ASM strengthening a competitor during the season …
