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.

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.

It’s been reported he’ll be joining Sporting CP.
