Report: Hull set asking price for Everton, Newcastle target Ahmed Elmohamady

St James Park

Newcastle and Everton have been linked with making a move for Hull winger Elmohamady.

The 28-year-old winger is expected to move to the Premier League this summer following Hull’s relegation to the Championship, but the Tigers have placed a hefty price tag on his head.

A Mirror report claims that both Everton and Newcastle want to move for him this summer, with a cut-price £4 million deal planned, but the same report indicates that Hull will not be settling for anything less than £10 million.

Whilst that seems excessive for a 28-year-old from a relegated team, the Egyptian international has proven his ability in the Premier League, as well as his worth to Hull by ending last season with 94 consecutive league games to his name.

He is also adaptable, and his position as a right winger is only in name. Frequently utilised as a wing-back for the Tigers, he can play up the entire right flank, and has an impressive crossing ability to provide an offensive threat.

Tigers boss Steve Bruce sees Elmohamady as a vital part of his playing squad as he looks to win promotion back to the Premier League at the first attempt, and has slapped the price tag on his head to ward off interest.

Everton and Newcastle were willing to pay £4 million for his services, and there is no new indication if they will up their offers to the asking price, with potential foreign targets available on cheaper deals.
