Wolves: Nuno Espirito Santo’s side taking interest in Mohamed Simakan - Premier League

Wolverhampton Wanderers are interested in signing Strasbourg defender Mohamed Simakan, according to reports.

Simakan on Molineux radar?

The 20-year-old is a highly-rated young centre-back in Ligue 1 and has been described as a “reliable defender” and “natural leader” after progressing through the ranks at Marseille (via BTL).

According to TuttoMercatoWeb, Nuno Espirito Santo is keen on bringing him to the West Midlands, while he is also attracting the interest of Everton and AC Milan.

Who is Wolves' PL top goal scorer?

The report added that the Rossoneri would be Simakan’s preferred choice and a fee around £18.2m would be expected to capture him.

From 16 appearances in Ligue 1 for Strasbourg, the Frenchman has averaged 1.8 tackles, which tops what Willy Boly has managed to accumulate, with just 1.6 from 12 outings.

Transfer Tavern Verdict

While Wolves’ problems are in the attacking department with the absence of Raul Jimenez, the likes of Romain Saiss and Boly are either 30 years old or on the brink of hitting that age.

Nuno is thinking long-term with this signing and it could be a clever one. That being said, the physicality of the Premier League could be a challenge for Simakan.

Time will tell whether Nuno decides to pay the fee for him, in the hope that he decides to turn down a move to the San Siro in favour of Molineux.
