Stade Rennais thought to hit hard by offering Mohammed Salisu (21). It must be said that the negotiations between the Breton club and Real Valladolid took place in an extremely serene climate. So that the residents of Roazhon Park had sealed an agreement with the Iberian formation for the transfer of the Ghanaian central defender.
The main protagonist who has played twenty-nine La Liga games this season was a prime reinforcement for Stade Rennais. But against all odds, the native of Accra boy decided to break the negotiations with Rennes, surely favoring a new challenge in the Premier League.
For several weeks, the name of Southampton has often returned to the media to welcome Salisu next season.
But the Saints would not be alone on this file. According to our sources, Everton is closely monitoring the situation of the Valladolid player. The Toffees who wish to strengthen in the central hinge, have targeted the defender of LOSC Gabriel (22 years old). As we were revealing to you, the player unrivaled even found a contractual agreement with the English club and a first offer was transmitted to the Mastiffs.
But in parallel, Napoli would have got along with the northern club and the Brazilian central defender. Aware that multiple snag are to be overcome in this case, the English leaders do not close their door to sign Salisu, left-handed player whose profile remains very appreciated at Everton. The Toffees could move closer to Real Valladolid if negotiations with Gabriel fail.
Mohammed Salisu, a meteoric rise:
For his first season in the elite of Spanish football, the Ghanaian made a strong impression, and this from the first opportunities granted to him by Sergio Gonzalez. He did not really need time to adapt, the transition from D3 where the reserve team played in La Liga was very natural. He quickly established himself as an essential cog behind it. His qualities in placing and reading the game allowed him to distinguish himself quickly, and he remains comfortable in other aspects of the game such as duels or aerial play.
He also managed to pull out of the game in several games against the leaders of the Iberian championship, like this trip to the Santiago Bernabéu (0-0) in August and this score also obtained against Atlético in October .
It is therefore quite natural that many teams have come to take an interest in the player who, if he continues his evolution in a linear fashion, risks becoming one of the references to his position in the years to come. All the same, he will have to succeed in erasing some faults which have sometimes been close to costing Valladolid . He may indeed tend to have some concerns in terms of concentration, as shown by his penalty offered to Leganés on June 13, ultimately without major consequences (2-1 victory). He may also have a tendency to want to kick the ball too much, which can cause him to lose balloons or poorly communicate with his midfielders.
