Report: Wolves eyeing Saint-Etienne talent Aimen Moueffek

Wolverhampton Wanderers are said to be on the tail of Saint-Etienne starlet Aimen Moueffek.

According to But! via Le10 Sport, the Premier League side are currently one of a few teams circling the right-back.

Moueffek is also courting attention from Borussia Monchengladbach, Bayer Leverkusen and Napoli, and it’s explained the player is not sure where to head at the moment.

GFFN add that Cadiz and Anderlecht are also keen.

Saint-Etienne want to keep hold of the young talent and have already made him an offer to extend.

The teenager is said to be prepared to wait before making a decision in order to make the correct move for his career.

Moueffek, who is a French youth international, will only have a year remaining on his current deal this summer, meaning there may be some pressure for Claude Puel to keep hold of the gem if there is to be no agreement over a new deal.

The youngster only made his professional debut in September 2020 and has gone on to make 14 first-team appearances and in a variety of positions.

Versatile Moueffek has played at right-back, left-back and in midfield, and is clearly a bright prospect.

One to watch

Moueffek seems like a real talent and the level of interest being reported would suggest he could be well worth looking at.

The fact he is so versatile will stand him in good stead, and makes him ideal for Wolves, who like players being able to assume multiple different roles.

Saint-Etienne have a decent history of producing young talent, especially defenders (Wesley Fofana, William Saliba, Faouzi Ghoulam and Kurt Zouma some cases in point), and so Moueffek should be monitored closely, especially if he could be going cheap.
