Foster to compete with €40m forward

AS Monaco have completed the signing of France international striker Wissam Ben Yedder from LaLiga outfit Sevilla in a deal worth a reported €40m.
 
With Radamel Falcao poised for a switch to Turkish Super Lig giants Galatasaray, Monaco head coach Leonardo Jardim has been on the lookout for an experienced forward to spearhead their attack this season.
 
 
Amajita striker Lyle Foster, 18, led the line in their opening day defeat to Olympique Lyon last Friday - in which Cesc Fabregas was sent off in their opening half.
 
The club have acted swiftly to now secure one of the most exciting forwards in Europe, who was said to be on the radar of Manchester United.
 
"I chose Monaco because I believe in this project and I am determined to do everything possible to go after our common ambitions," he told the club's website.
 
"I come with the intention to prove, as always, my qualities and with the desire to cross 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 can not wait to start."
 
The 29-year-old scored 30 goals and registered 11 assists in 54 games across all competitions for Sevilla in the 2018/19 season.
