‘Unnamed club’ eye Ghanian.
Spanish side Espanyol have confirmed that they have rejected an offer from an unnamed European club for Ghanian international midfielder Wakaso, Sky Sports reports.
Reports in Spain claim that an offer of €4.5 million (£3.9m) has been immediately knocked back by the Catalan club.
However, a sale has not been ruled out completely by the club, though it is thought it will have to take a bid of around €8 million (£6.9m) for Espanyol to even begin to consider letting him leave.
A number of clubs across Europe are thought to be monitoring Wakaso’s current situation, with the 22-year-old midfielder having impressed with some fine performances since joining Barcelona’s neighbours last summer.
Swansea City are believed to be among those near the front of the queue, with Michael Laudrup often devoting his attentions to La Liga in the pursuit of new signings.
Espanyol have kept the identity of the club to make the rejected offer to themselves, but made it known in no uncertain terms that the offer they received fell well short of their valuation.
Club director Jose Luis Morlanes told Catalunya Radio: “We have received an offer from a European club but we will not sell on these terms.”
