Wolverhampton Wanderers could yet sell Romain Saiss during this transfer window.
According to The Athletic it is ‘looking likely’ that the Moroccan will move on this month.
His contract expires next summer, and there has been no agreement over an extension.
But Wolves could look to cash in on Saiss before his value plummets.
Apparently he’ll be allowed to leave when Wolves identify a new central defender.
Saiss is the second longest-serving player at Molineux at the moment after Conor Coady.
He arrived in the Black Country from Angers for a fee of £3 million (Express & Star).
He has played a big part in Wolves’ rise back to the Premier League, and clocked up 174 appearances for the club.
Capable of playing in midfield or defence, Saiss has always given his all wherever he is asked to play.
Moving Saiss on now would be risky
While the idea of Saiss moving on this summer would usually be accepted by many, the fact is Wolves are very short at the back.
Willy Boly and Yerson Mosquera are currently injured, although they won’t be sidelined for too long.
But even with those two fit, Bruno Lage still doesn’t have many options.
Saiss can come in handy – surely it’s worth keeping him for one more season rather than selling him.
He arguably wouldn’t fetch much so it would make more sense to keep.
