Wissam Ben Yedder set to be Romelu Lukaku's replacement

Manchester United have reportedly agreed to personal terms with Sevilla star Wissam Ben Yedder, but the move could be the deciding factor on whether Romelu Lukaku will leave this summer. 

Lukaku has been heavily linked with a move to Inter Milan, while his agent has confirmed that talks are underway over a move to San Siro. 

With this move looming, United are forced to look for a replacement, and Sevilla-based publication La Colina de Nervion suggest that their search has led them to Ben Yedder. 

They further claim that Yedder's representatives have spoken to Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona, but United are said to have 'everything agreed' with the striker, and is a matter of Sevilla finalising the deal.

Ben Yedder is thought to have a release clause of around £35 million in his contract, meaning United could bypass negotiations entirely if they choose to pay such an amount.

£35 million would likely not be a problem for United, who have long been linked with Ben Yedder, so La Colina de Nervion believe the Frenchman will almost certainly be playing Premier League football next season.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is eager to overhaul his squad this summer, and such a figure would go a long way towards helping United rebuild.

Ben Yedder, who managed 30 goals and 11 assists last season, is the kind of exciting signing that fans have been crying out for, and he could be the ideal replacement for Lukaku.
