European transfer news: Monaco sign Wissam Ben Yedder from Sevilla after meeting French striker's buyout clause

Monaco have brought striker Wissam Ben Yedder back to France after signing him for €40m from Spanish side Sevilla..

Monaco matched the 29-year-old's buyout clause to bring the former Toulouse man back to Ligue 1 after spending three years in La Liga with Sevilla.

Ben Yedder has signed a five-year deal with the Principality side and comes with a decent goal-scoring reputation after bagging 70 goals in 138 games for Sevilla.

Monaco midfielder Rony Lopes has moved to Sevilla in response, with the 23-year-old joining for a fee of around €20m.

"I am very happy to be involved with AS Monaco," Ben Yedder told Monaco'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."

Monaco only just avoided relegation last season and started this season in similar fashion with a 3-0 defeat at home against Lyon on the opening day of the new French season.

Returning manager Leonardo Jardim has already signed Everton's Henry Onyekuru and is looking to bring in Juventus defender Daniele Rugani before the French transfer window closes on September 2.
