Wolverhampton trigger buyout clause of Mahmoud Trezeguet – Report
The 23-year-old, who featured in all three of Egypt’s games in the World Cup, had the best season of his career, scoring 16 goals and providing eight assists in 33 games with Turkey’s Kasımpaşa.
His impressive performances led Kasimpasa to trigger the release clause in his contract to seal the Egyptian’s services on a permanent basis.
However, his form attracted Wolves’ attention, who have joined Leicester and Turkish giants Galatasaray in the race to sign the winger, with Kasimpasa confirming to receive an offer from the latter.
The Wolves, who won promotion to the Premier League last season, have offered around £4.5 million for Trezeuget, which would trigger his buyout clause at parent club Anderlecht, according to Hurriyet.
But Galatasaray are the favourites to sign the Egyptian as they offered him €2.2m per year, compared to the €1.4m offered by the English side.
Trezeguet’s compatriot Ahmed Hegazi has also been linked with a move to Wolverhampton following West Brom’s relegation to the championship.
Trezeguet started his football career at Egypt giants Al Ahly in 2012, donning the famous red shirt until 2015, winning two CAF Champions Leagues, the 2014 Confederation Cup, one league title, and two Egypt Super Cups.
Overall he made 87 appearances for the Red Devils, before joining Anderlecht, however, he endured a difficult start to life with Belguim’s most successful club, as after just 11 appearances, he was loaned out to Royal Excel Mouscron and then Kasimpasa.
His time on loan saw him impressing, scoring 23 goals while providing 13 assists in 61 appearances with the two clubs across all competitions.
Trezeguet helped massively in guiding Egypt for the 2018 World Cup after winning two crucial penalties during the qualifiers, including a last-gasp penalty against Congo that earned the Pharaohs their qualification to the World Cup.
