We rarely get to see players with such an enigma, grace and individual ability that he can keep a club floating at the top level on his own. Wissam Ben Yedder’s outstanding individual heroics have been beneficial to Ligue 1 side Toulouse for six years running now but at one point of time, it seems too much and now is the time when the graceful 25-year-old should part ways with the Ligue 1 side and look for bigger and better things in his career.

According to The Mirror, West Ham United are willing to pay around £8m to sign the Toulouse striker this summer. West Ham’s winding search for the perfect striker to spearhead their attack next season has linked them with moves with plenty of big name forwards like BaccaBatshuayi, Benteke, Manolo Gabbiadini, Lacazette and so on. Ben Yedder might not be a big name like the ones mentioned but the Frenchman’s quality is undisputed.

For just £8m, it could prove to be the bargain of the transfer window, a daylight robbery. The 25-year-old has been a stardust in Ligue 1 over the years now having managed to carry Toulouse single-handedly on his shoulders. The 25-year-old was just an amateur and futsal player before heading to Toulouse in 2010 but he is now one of the most clinical forwards in French football having scored 70 goals in last four seasons in all competitions.

Toulouse just managed to rescue their Ligue 1 status last season despite the flamboyant striker firing in 17 Ligue 1 goals while netting 23 in all competitions in total. With just one season remaining on his contract, it’s the best time for the 25-year-old to part ways with the club he represented for six long years.

The French striker has a pretty small frame. He is just 5’7″ and is blessed with a strong ability on the ball. Technically gifted, Ben Yedder has bags of pace and great ability to find pockets of space behind the defence with his sharp movement off the ball. A clinical finisher, Ben Yedder’s brilliant link up play looks like a readymade ingredient for him to succeed in the fast counter-attacking gameplay of Slaven Bilic.

Ben Yedder is not a static kind of centre-forward and never given the opponents defenders any time to relax on the ball. The Frenchman has the willingness to make something happen out of nothing which will be fruitful at the Olympic Stadium. With players like Payet, Lanzini, Tore, Feghouli, Antonio behind him, The Frenchman should be able to hit the ground running at the Olympic stadium.
