Sampaoli puts Sevilla’s pursuit of Wissam Ben Yedder on hold

Sevilla’s new boss Jorge Sampaoli has put the club’s pursuit of Toulouse striker Wissam Ben Yedder on hold, despite the fact that an agreement between the three parties was very close.

A deal was derailed following the departure of Unai Emery, with Sporting Director Monchi deciding to put all negotiations for transfer targets on hold until the new manager gave the go ahead.

This situation could allow Lyon and Leicester City, for example, back into the race.
