Wolves transfer news: Romain Saiss hot property as at least seven clubs line up defender

At least seven clubs are reportedly lining up a potential free swoop for Wolves defender Romain Saiss.

According to L’Equipe, the Morocco international is now courting quite a bit of attention with only a couple months of the season remaining.

The 31-year-old, of course, currently stands to leave the club at the end of the season.

His contract is expiring, and it’s possible he could move on to pastures news.

It was claimed recently that Wolves have put an contract offer on the table for Saiss.

It remains to be seen if the player will sign on the dotted line, but if he doesn’t then it seems he will not be short of options with regards to getting a new club.

L’Equipe say Real Betis, Villarreal, Wolfsburg, Marseille, Lyon, Rennes and Strasbourg are all keen.

Apparently there is also interest from teams in Turkey.

It is little wonder interest in Saiss is really high. The star has generally had a really good campaign for Wolves so far.

He has been a trusted member of the starting XI for Bruno Lage, and helped Wolves to become of the best defensive teams in all of Europe.

His level has dipped slightly since he returned from AFCON. But there’s no doubt Saiss has been superb on the whole this season.

Wolves should look to keep Saiss for another season

All these teams are circling Saiss certainly tells a story.

They can see the great contributions he’s made for Wolves this season. Clearly he’s viewed as a great pick-up on a free transfer.

But Wolves should be doing all they can to try and keep Saiss for at least one more season.

The £22,000-a-week star has really thrived since Lage came in as manager.

He has been given a new lease of life. At the very least he can be a solid squad option next term.
