Wolves transfer news: Besiktas interested in Romain Saiss

Turkish giants Besiktas are reportedly interested in signing Romain Saiss.

The 32-year-old announced yesterday via Instagram that he would be leaving the club after failing to reach an agreement to extend.

The Morocco international departs after six years, having signed shortly after the takeover by Fosun.

According to Foot Mercato, Al-Ahli of Saudi Arabia have already made a good offer for Saiss.

But the player is said to want to stay in Europe.

It is stated that Valérien Ismaël, Besiktas’ head coach, is a big fan of the former Angers star, and seems him as a successor to the Croatian international Domagoj Vida, who is leaving.

It is now about whether Besiktas can match Saiss’ wage demands.

There could now be a real clamour for Saiss following the news that he is leaving Molineux.

It was reported back in March that several teams were circling the player with a view to signing him as a free agent.

And most recently, Barcelona were linked with a shock move for the star.

In the first half of 2021/22, Saiss arguably enjoyed the best form of his Wolves career. But following his return from AFCON, his level dipped.

He endured a poor finish to the campaign, as did Wolves as a collective.

It will probably not be long until Saiss is signed up with a new club.

The star may have had a poor end to the campaign, but he would still make for a fantastic addition for a lot of clubs on a free transfer.

Saiss is someone that always gives his all and plays with real heart.

He is a brilliant character, and will be a big miss in the Wolves dressing room, and an exciting gain for another club’s.
