EXCLUSIVE: No bids for Hull City star Elmohamady
Hull City are yet to receive any official bids for right wing-back Ahmed Elmohamady, KingFut.com can exclusively reveal.
The Hull City star has been linked to countless Premier League clubs over the summer including Everton, Newcastle, Stoke City, Aston Villa and West Bromwich Albion, while Benfica and Sevilla were also reportedly interested.
Despite the Toffees previously reported to be ‘considering a £4million bid’ for Elmohamady, Hull City have yet to receive any offers for the Egyptian international according to a club source, BBC Radio Humberside and club commentator David Burns told KingFut.com.
Tottenham Hotspur were also keen on Elmohamady earlier this summer, however, things went quiet after they signed former Burnley right-back Kieran Trippier.
The 27-year-old recently expressed his desire to remain in Europe rather than returning to play in Egypt, as he ‘wants to make history’; previously stating that he would like to emulate Ryan Giggs and “play in the English Premier League till I’m 40 years old.”
Hull City previously insisted that Ahmed Elmohamady was not for sale, however, Bruce recently mentioned that the club won’t stand in anybody’s way, ‘if the price is right’. This week, the Tigers sold Elmo’s teammates James Chester and Robbie Brady to West Brom and Norwich City for £8m and £7m respectively.
Hull manager Steve Bruce told BBC Radio Humberside earlier this week: “We’ve said all summer that it is inevitable that we are going to lose a few players because that is the fallout of relegation.
“We said from day one that if the price is right then we are not going to stand in anybody’s way,” he added.
“James and Robbie had one year left on their contracts and they made it clear they wanted to play in the Premier League. We have to look after the club.”
It is worth mentioning Elmohamady is also in his final year of his contract, but the club are aiming to tie him down for a new long-term deal, as per the Hull Daily Mail.
