West Ham United are interested in signing Wissam Ben Yedder from Toulouse in the summer transfer window, according to Il Corriere Dello Sport.

Ben Yedder has been on the books of Toulouse since 2010 and has a contract until June 2017.

The former France Under-21 international striker is rated as one of the best players in Ligue 1 and has been linked with a number of clubs.

According to Il Corriere Dello Sport, Italian clubs AS Roma and Juventus, and Spanish outfit Sevilla are also monitoring the 25-year-old.

Ben Yedder has scored 16 goals and created 28 chances in 33 Ligue 1 appearances for Toulouse this season.
