Last week, Liverpool were reported to be interested in Monaco forward Wissam Ben Yedder, but it looks like Manchester United may be about to steal a march in the race to sign the Frenchman.

According to reports, officials from United have already been in contact with the representatives of the French international about the possibility of a summer move.

Monaco only signed the 29-year-old last summer but he’s performed very well and as such, the Ligue 1 side are apparently ready to cash in on him after just one campaign.

It’s unclear as to how much interest the Reds have in Ben Yedder, but it may be that he was being sounded out for a possible move of top target Timo Werner was unavailable.

It appears that a deal for Werner could still be on the table, provided that the current global situation doesn’t stop the Reds spending the money needed to get the German.

Ben Yedder has certainly been in excellent form for Monaco, but aged 29, he doesn’t appear to fit the profile of a Liverpool signing.

If he does join Man United, he certainly has the talent to improve their squad, but given his age, it could be on a shorter-term basis.
