Wydad AC could see one of its key players, the defender Mohamed Nahiri, slip away. He is wanted by several clubs and seems unwilling to sign an extension to his soon-to-be-expired contract. Here are some explanations.
It is highly likely that Mohamed Nahiri will not stay in Wydad, despite efforts by the club’s management to convince him to renew his contract. In fact, the player is in great demand by several foreign clubs.
According to the sports website africatopsport, Nahiri is currently the target of FC Nantes and the Stade de Reims in France.
Mohamed Nahiri was born on 22 October 1991 in El Jadida and began his career with Difaa from 2008 to 2013. He joined FUS in Rabat and played there for four seasons (2013-2017) before joining Wydad AC in Casablanca.
He is the third most expensive player in the Botola. His value on the transfer market is estimated by the site transfertmarket at 900,000 dollars, behind his team-mate Ahmed Reda Tagnaouiti (1.20 million dollars), and Rajaoui Badr Banoun (1.10 million dollars).
At the age of 28, Nahiri seems eager to try a new experience elsewhere, one that would provide him with a comfortable retirement. Will WAC president Said Naciri succeed in preventing him from doing so? Answer in the coming weeks or even days.
