West Ham and Wolves have both been credited with an interest in West Brom defender Ahmed Hegazi by ESPNFC.
The Baggies saw themselves relegated last season from the Premier League after a pretty torrid campaign but defender Hegazi was one of the brighter points to take away from the campaign.
Indeed, a strong and no-nonsense defender, the Egyptian quickly adapted to Premier League life and it would seem that he might get the chance to have another crack at the top flight next season.
Both the Hammers and Wolves are feeling ambitious this summer.
The former have gone big in the market already as they look to supply Manuel Pellegrini with an exciting squad whilst the Old Gold’s quest to quickly establish themselves in the top flight is well documented.
Both see Hegazi as part of their respective revolutions, then, and it’s thought that £10 million will do it as that is the defender’s release clause at the Baggies.
Both could do with Hegazi’s presence.
A player more than capable of playing in the Premier League again next season, he would strengthen either side’s defence with his physical approach and strong reading of the game.
Given Wolves’ frosty-at-best relationship with local rivals West Brom, though, you’d have thought the Hammers might just have the edge here.
