Barcelona see a £67m offer for French forward Wissam Ben Yedder rejected by Monaco, according to a report.

Barcelona have reportedly had a £67m offer for Wissam Ben Yedder rejected by Monaco.

The Spanish champions are thought to be in the market for a new striker this month with Luis Suarez facing an extended period on the sidelines as he recovers from a knee operation.

Arsenal's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Chelsea's Olivier Giroud are among those to be linked with potential moves to Quique Setien's side before the end of the month.

However, according to footmercato, Ben Yedder, who has scored 14 times in 18 Ligue 1 appearances this season, has now emerged as a leading target.

The report claims that the Catalan giants approached Monaco with an offer of £67m but were quickly informed that the Frenchman was not available at that price.

Ben Yedder managed 70 goals in 138 appearances during his time with Sevilla, including 38 strikes in 91 La Liga outings.

Ousmane Dembele's injury problems have left Barca even shorter in the final third of the field, and Setien suffered his first defeat as head coach on Saturday as the Spanish champions went down 2-0 at Valencia.
