PAOK demand €3m for Amr Warda amid Galatasaray speculation
Greek side PAOK will demand that Galatasaray pay €3m if they wish to sign Egypt international Amr Warda next summer, according to reports.
The former Al Ahly winger moved to Atromitos on loan from PAOK last summer and he has gone on to become a key player for them, scoring 11 goals and assisting five times in 25 games.
And Turkish reports recently claimed that giants Galatasaray consider Amr Warda as a replacement for Garry Rodrigues, who is reportedly close to leaving to either Newcastle United or Everton next summer, and Rodrigues’ agent suggested Amr Warda as a replacement for his client.
KingFut had previously revealed that the player wants to leave PAOK after being frozen out by the team, which was granted as he moved to Atromitos on loan last summer.
And the successful loan spell has attracted the attention of the Turkish giants, who were also linked with a move for Egypt’s Mahmoud Trezeguet.
The €3m is reported to be the minimum PAOK will consider for the player, but with Galatasaray currently under financial fair play, the Greek side could be forced to lower their valuation.
The 24-year-old started his career at Egypt giants Al Ahly, but he managed to make only two appearances and not even a loan spell with Ittihad of Alexandria could save his career in Egypt.
His lack of game time resulted in him moving to Greek side Panetolikos on a free transfer. During his time there, he managed to score 10 goals and provided six assists in 45 games.
After a number of scintillating performances for Panetolikos, he switched allegiances to PAOK in January 2017, however, it didn’t quite work out for Warda at PAOK, as after just 14 appearances he was loaned out at Atromitos.
Warda is expected to be part of the Egypt squad that will travel to the 2018 World Cup, as Egypt manager Hector Cuper is a big fan of the winger and has selected him for the 2017 AFCON.
