Wolverhampton Wanderers fans have been reacting to news that Rayan Ait-Nouri is set to complete a £10 million permanent move to the club.
That’s the claim from The Athletic, who say Angers will have a 50% sell-on clause.
Apparently though, Wolves have a buyout clause should they wish to remove that later down the line.
It is thought Wolves will announce Ait-Nouri in the coming days.
It comes after the original clause – thought to be £18 million (The Athletic) – Wolves negotiated with Angers expired.
Ait-Nouri had a decent loan spell in 2020/21.
He ended up making 24 appearances, with first-choice Jonny Castro Otto starting and finishing the season injured.
Fitness issues for Fernando Marcal also meant there were plenty of chances for him to impress.
Fans took to Ait-Nouri, who showcased an exciting attacking style and great footwork.
There were times though where he looked a little suspect defensively – but such things can be common in young full-backs.
It’s thought Ait-Nouri signing will pave the way for Ruben Vinagre to leave Molineux after four years.
On social media, fans have been reacting to the Ait-Nouri development.
Many see this as brilliant business by the club given the player’s clear potential
£10 million is undoubtedly a great fee.
That said, some have expressed their surprise and dismay at the 50% sell-on clause, which is very high indeed:
Right decision I imagine we are trying to negotiate a better deal for Vitinha as well

Good deal for us now. Potentially great deal for Angers long term
