This summer again, Algerian internationals will liven up the transfer market.
The Fennecs are still popular! As often in recent years, Algerian internationals will dynamise the summer transfer market. Arrived in 2016 at Betis, Aissa Mandi (29) left the Andalusians free a few days ago. Barring a big surprise, the defender should put his bags down to Villarreal. Also at the end of his contract at Schalke 04, who was relegated, Nabil Bentaleb (26) stirs up envy.
Business to seize!
As revealed on our site, two clubs are on the move in the Premier League, one of which has even already made an offer. Stables in Turkey, Italy and Qatar have also looked into his case. The player and his entourage will study all these avenues before deciding. Freely recruited by OL last October, Djamel Benlamri (31) had signed for a year, plus an optional year.
While the Gones will not lift its option, Turkish teams, as well as in the Middle East, had positioned themselves according to our information. A trend confirmed by the player. “For the moment I am focused with the national team, I have offers in Qatar, I will finish the internship and we will see what the future holds for us”, he said in selection. Already in Qatar, in Al-Sadd, Baghdad Bounedjah (29) would still dream of Europe. He confessed to being courted by Brighton.
The Algerians of L1 attract attention
However, his club, where he is under contract until 2024, is closing the door to a departure. Another Greens striker to be popular: Andy Delort (29). Author of a good season in Montpellier, the player is salivating two clubs in Qatar. But not only. Delort is also interested in clubs in France, Spain and Germany. Also in Ligue 1, Zinedine Fehrat (28) will seek to leave Nîmes this summer. And several stables are ready to jump at the chance.
Thus, the player under contract until 2022 has touches in Turkey. According to our information, in addition to a top club in L1, AS Saint-Étienne, Glasgow Rangers and Sassuolo have it under their eye. Like him, Farid Boulaya (28) will not go to the end of his bay in Metz, which ends in a year. It must be said that the Algerian, who wants to play Europe, has touches in France and abroad. The team recently explained that Messins hoped to recover 4 million euros from his sale.
The Fennecs shake up the transfer window!
At 31, Ryad Boudebouz is also going to change tune. Under contract until 2022, the native of Colmar does not enter the plans of Claude Puel and ASSE. Angers has been cited as a potential drop-off point. Abroad, Adam Ounas (24) is also coming to a turning point in his adventure in Naples, since he will be free in a year. Loaned several times, the former Bordeaux will not be retained. The Partenopei are looking to sell it. An amount of 10 million euros was mentioned in Italy.
But this price seems high for a player who has one year of contract left. Despite everything, Bologna, Sassuolo and Torino would follow his situation. Like him, Rachid Ghezzal (29) left Ligue 1 a few years ago. This season, Fennec have been very good at Besiktas, a club to which they were loaned by Leicester. One year from the end of his tenure with the Foxes, the native of Décines attracts attention.
The beautiful season of Ghezzal opens doors for him
Remember that he was decisive in obtaining the Turkish cup-league double and that he ended the year with 8 goals and 18 assists in 35 matches in all competitions! According to our information, Besiktas wants to keep it permanently and is working in this direction. But other Turkish teams (Fenerbahçe, Galatasaray), as well as Fiorentina, where he has already been loaned, and clubs from the Middle East are also seduced. Ghezzal therefore takes the time to reflect, he who is in search of stability after several loans and who wants to be part of an ambitious sports project in a club. This could allow him to achieve his selection goals, namely to participate in the next CAN and the 2022 World Cup.
Also in Turkey, Sofiane Feghouli (31) is still linked to Galatasaray for a year. While the Turkish team is trying to put it on the market, the player has not received any concrete proposal for the moment according to our information. Another part of this Algerian selection, captain Riyad Mahrez (30) is no exception to transfer rumors. Much appreciated by Pep Guardiola, the footballer under contract until 2023 will not be pushed towards the exit by Manchester City. However, the English press specifies that the Skyblues will not close the door in the event of a substantial offer. Thus, his name has been linked to Barça. But the operation seems complicated financially for the indebted Blaugranas. Summer will therefore be lively for the Fennecs!
