Mahmoud Hassan, otherwise known as ‘Trezeguet’ was one of many players thrown into the rumour mill during the World Cup last summer.
The quick-footed Egyptian winger was frequently linked with a move to the Premier League through the sunny months. The Sun reported that Everton had been keeping an eye on a player named after the former Juventus and France striker while Hurriyet claimed that Wolves were also keen on bringing him to England.
With both Everton and Wolves seemingly aiming to enhance their attacking options in the winter, could Trezeguet be on their radar again? Maybe he should be.
Against all the odds, the 24-year-old stayed at Kasimpasa and he has ensured his form has not dipped after a stellar 2017/18, in which he was nominated for the Super Lig Player of the Year award.
Trezequet has scored or assisted ten goals in just 14 games. And, according to Voetbal Nieuws, Kasimpasa once again face a challenge holding onto the left-sided forward with a release clause in his contract of just £4.5 million.
In today’s market, that is a real bargain. But money is not in short supply for Everton or Wolves so it remains to be seen if they’ve moved onto bigger names.
