Report: Moyes set to return for former Everton target Ben Yedder

David Moyes

The 24-year-old striker has been linked with Moyes before, and he may now be set to come at Real Sociedad, who lost out on Danny Ings to Liverpool.

David Moyes' Real Sociedad have been linked with a move for Toulouse's Wissam Ben Yedder by AS, a player the Scot had reportedly been eager to sign when he was at Everton.

Toulouse only just remained in Ligue 1 this season, finishing just above the relegation zone. Ben Yedder was the club's top scorer managing 15 goals in all competitions.

It was a decent return for a player at a struggling club, and continued his impressive goalscoring for the Haute-Garonne outfit.

Ben Yedder has now scored 48 goals since coming through at TFC, and it looks increasingly likely that he will departing the Stadium Municipal, according to reports from AS.

He has been linked with many other clubs in Europe in recent years, with Everton and Spurs two from the Premier League that have kept track of him. AS are reporting now that Ligue 1 giants Marseille, Lyon and Lazio are all tracking him, while Real Sociedad are reluctant to pay the £10 million that Toulouse are demanding for their top scorer.

The former Manchester United manager has been linked with Ben Yedder before, with the Sun putting him on the Toffees shortlist a couple of years ago.

With Moyes having missed out on Danny Ings to Liverpool earlier in the summer, he may have to encourage his board to stump up a little more cash if he if to avoid missing out on a player that he has long had his eye on.
