Ben Yedder targets Monaco success

Wissam Ben Yedder completes move to Monaco.

Wissam Ben Yedder has completed his move from Sevilla to Monaco and cannot wait to get started with his new club.

Monaco have moved quickly to wrap up a deal for the France international as Radamel Falcao prepares to leave the Ligue 1 outfit for Galatasaray, and the striker has penned a five-year contract.

Monaco have forked out £37million for the player, who bagged 70 goals in 138 appearances for Sevilla, and Ben Yedder hopes to have similar success with his new club.

“I am very happy to be involved with AS Monaco,” Ben Yedder told his new club’s official website. “I felt a strong desire on the part of the club to have me come.

“I chose Monaco because I believe in this project and I am determined to do everything possible to go after our common goals. I come with the intention to prove, as always, my qualities and with the desire to reach a new level.

“I want to thank the club for the trust it gives me. It’s a beautiful day and the beginning of a new story that I cannot wait to start.”
