Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Romain Saiss has reportedly emerged as a potential transfer target for Rennes.

According to a report today from Foot Mercato, the Morocco international could make a return to France this summer.

That’s despite the player having only recently had his contract extended by a further year at Molineux.

The 31-year-old is apparently open to a potential move.

But it’s stated that Rennes may not have the capacity to match Saiss’ financial demands.

The former Angers star has been with Wolves since the summer of 2016, transferring for a reported £3 million (Express & Star).

He has been a great servant to the club, and has been a very important player over the past few years due to his versatility and experience.


Last term he made 30 appearances for the club across all competitions.

Sell, if the price is right

Perhaps Wolves ought to consider selling Saiss if the club is after raising funds.

Realistically he’s past his prime now, and there were some shaky performances in 2020/21.

Perhaps he’d make for a decent squad player, but Wolves could definitely upgrade.

That said, he may well make a big impression on Bruno Lage, if the 45-year-old takes the job next week as expected.
