West Brom defender Ahmed Hegazi on Fenerbahce radar – Report
Egypt international and West Brom defender Ahmed Hegazi is on Fenerbahce’s transfer shortlist, according to reports in Turkey.
The Turkish giants are looking to sign a center-back before the end of the summer transfer window, as they currently have only three players in that position, Martin Skrtel, Roman Neustädter, and Yigithan Güveli.
Ahmed Hegazi has emerged as a potential target for Fenerbahce, alongside Stoke City’s Bruno Martins Indi, and former Porto defender Diego Reyes, who is currently a free agent.
According to Turkish reports, the club will make a final decision in the upcoming days before starting negotiations with one of these three defenders.
Newcastle, Brighton, West Ham, and Wolverhampton were linked with a move for Hegazi after the Baggies relegation, but the Egyptian remained a West Brom player.
Hegazi has started all of his club’s games this season, providing one assist during their 4-3 win over Norwich City a week ago.
The 27-year-old initially joined West Brom on loan from Al Ahly last summer, before the Baggies activated his buyout clause in December.
Since then, he has been an integral part of their team, making 47 appearances for the club, and scoring two goals.
Should the former Al Ahly defender join the Turkish Super League, he will become the only Pharaoh in the competition, and also the first Egyptian to join Fenerbahce.
