Wolverhampton Wanders’ player of the year Bakary Sako is set to seal a £4.3m move to Fulham next week, according to reports from the Midlands.
The final details of the fee are subject to further negotiations between Wolves chief executive Jez Moxey and Fulham’s Alistair Mackintosh. But Wolves expect the winger to soon be on the move and have allowed Sako’s representatives to open talks with the Premier League club over personal terms. Those discussions have already been completed and a medical is due to take place next week.
Moxey is seeking as high a fee as possible for Wolves’ most sellable-asset and is leveraging interest from Lille, Lyon and Marseille to ensure Wanderers get the best deal. Sako’s departure would leave Wolves left on the left flank and new manager Kenny Jackett is also scouting replacements.
Jackett told the Express and Star:
“Sako is the only natural wide left player in the squad and, if he does go, that would need some attention. And we would need that option in the squad? Yes.”
