Monaco forward Wissam Ben Yedder has claimed that Barcelona have attempted to sign him in each of the last two transfer windows.

The 29-year-old joined Monaco from Sevilla last summer and has been in impressive form during the 2019-20 campaign, scoring 19 times in 31 appearances in all competitions.

The France international has said that Barca tried to sign him last summer and again in January but were unable to get a deal over the line on either occasion.

“Barcelona could have happened much earlier for me,” Ben Yedder told Onze Mundial. “Last summer they made contacts for me, they collected a lot of information about me and the same was true this winter, but the move did not happen. It shows I am doing a good job, but despite this interest I am totally focused on my performances with Monaco.”

Quique Setien’s side are thought to have had a £67m offer for Ben Yedder rejected in the final week of the January transfer window.
