Liverpool emerges as the frontrunners in the pursuit of Wolves left-back Rayan Ait-Nouri, with reports suggesting that the Reds are close to sealing a €40m deal for the 23-year-old.


Algerian outlet La Gazette du Fennec has indicated that Liverpool is in pole position to secure the signature of the talented defender.


There is significant interest from Liverpool in Ait-Nouri, as indicated by Algerian journalist Abdel Hamed.


Hamed’s tweet suggested that the left-back is looking to depart Wolves this summer, with Liverpool being the top choice.


He also mentioned Ait-Nouri’s desire to be coached by Jurgen Klopp, and despite the hiring of Arne Slot, the player’s decision has not wavered.


Even though Chelsea and Manchester City are also in the running, Hamed pointed out that Ait-Nouri is leaning towards Liverpool due to the “unclear project” at Stamford Bridge and the “less freedom” under Pep Guardiola at Manchester City.


Financial Impact and Termination Provision.


The Gazette du Fennec has reported that Wolves will not consider offers below €40 million (£33.9m), while Ait-Nouri’s termination provision is set at €45 million (£38.2m).


Sources from Ait-Nouri’s home country are confident that he will leave Wolves this summer, with Liverpool being the most likely destination.


David Lynch, in an interview on Anfield Index’s Media Matters podcast, supported these statements by saying, “Due to the frequent recent links and Liverpool’s strong ties with his agency, I believe there is definitely some truth to this.”


Ait-Nouri’s affiliation with Jorge Mendes’ Gestifute agency, which oversees Liverpool players like Darwin Nunez and Diogo Jota, enhances the bond. Lynch mentioned the possibility of a transfer, citing the close relationship between the club and the agency.


Liverpool’s approach includes offloading players to finance new acquisitions. Kostas Tsimikas is being considered for a potential sale, as his future at Anfield remains uncertain. This decision would create room for Ait-Nouri to challenge Andy Robertson for the left-back role.


Lynch stated that Kostas might be a candidate for leaving this summer, but emphasized that it’s not a done deal yet. He also highlighted the importance of not just adding more left-backs without a clear plan, as Liverpool doesn’t operate in that manner.


There is growing momentum behind the idea of Rayan Ait-Nouri joining Liverpool, with strong connections between the club and the player’s agency.


Despite financial and player sales obstacles, Liverpool’s transfer market strategy could pave the way for Ait-Nouri to join the team. Insights from La Gazette du Fennec have shed light on Liverpool’s strong position in this potential transfer.
