Agent for Chelsea and Liverpool-linked Daniel Wass talks up potential January move

Amid reports of interest from Chelsea and Liverpool, the agent for Evian defender Daniel Wass has declared that the Denmark international could move elsewhere this winter.

Evian defender Daniel Wass will be available in the winter transfer window if the right offer comes in, according to his agent.

Wass, 25, has been in excellent form for the Ligue 1 club so far this season, scoring eight goals in 15 total appearances thanks to his stunning free-kick prowess.

A versatile right-back, who is just as comfortable as a winger, both Chelsea and Liverpool have been named as potential suitors in recent months, with Evian manager Pascal Dupraz conceding just this week that it would be impossible to keep him at the club past next summer.

“He has an exemplary mentality because his position is the right side, but he can play in the middle and at right-back," he said.

"We decided to keep him last summer, but things are clear. June 30th, he will take his talent elsewhere. I invite the big clubs to show interest in him."

Agent Michael Johansen has since stressed, however, that his client could be snapped up as soon as next month, telling Calcio Mercato: “If they get the right offer absolutely yes: in this case it depends very well with Evian.

“As for June, the player will go away and almost certainly will be leaving.”

Wass was reported to be a potential target for then-Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho back in the summer of 2012 following a successful season-long loan at Evian from Benfica, but went on to seal a €2.5 million permanent switch to the French side instead.

The Denmark international himself previously stressed in October that, while he is enjoying his time with Les Roses, a move to a bigger club remains at the top of his wishlist.

“My head is still in Evian but if you offer me a departure in January, I will not say no,” he said.

“I want to progress and prove my abilities at a higher level.

“But a club has to be interested to meet the requirements that Evian have.”
