FSV Mainz 05 no longer expects Moussa Niakhate to stay. Instead, he could soon appear in the English Premier League. Mainz wants to be paid well for this departure.

Departure is likely: Moussa Niakhaté from Mainz 05 was in demand last year, but stayed with FSV. That is likely to change this summer. Sports director Christian Heidel told the “Bild”: “I assume that Moussa’s advisor is by no means so calm. We plan on Moussa leaving!”

Short, compact, clear

Half of Europe is interested: After four years with Mainz, the 26-year-old captain does not want to extend his contract, which expires in 2023. In addition to VfL Wolfsburg, Newcastle United, West Ham United and Everton FC are all interested in signing the French central defender.

Hope for a high transfer fee: After Jeremiah St. Juste (12 million euros), Niakhaté Mainz could bring a second mega transfer fee. According to “Transfermarkt”, the central defender currently has a market value of 18 million euros.
