Steve Bruce looks to strengthen KC Stadium squad.
Hull City are exploring the French market this summer, and are readying bids for Evian midfielder Mohammed Rabiu and Marseille’s Morgan Amalfitano, reports the Hull Daily Mail.
Steve Bruce is looking to add to their midfield options, arguably their weakest link, and wants to bring in some quality from France. Having already brought in Yannick Sagbo from Evian this summer, the club hopes that’s their relationship is strong, and this will give them the edge in signing Rabiu from the Ligue 1 outfit.
Bruce and managing director at Hull Nick Thompson left at half-time during their final pre-season game against Real Betis to fly over to France to continue negotiations for Rabiu, and hope to conclude a deal within the next 48 hours. The club are keen on signing Morgan Amalfitano from Marseille.
The 28-year old has been made available for transfer this summer, and has been linked with loan moves to the Premier League already this summer, with West Ham and Fulham both keen at one stage, but have now cooled their interest. Hull are looking to swoop in a sign him on a season-long loan deal.
Bruce is desperate to add to the midfield, having lost Correy Evans and Tom Cairney to Blackburn Rovers this summer, and attempts to sign Wilson Palacios from Stoke have also come to nothing. The Tigers hope they can conclude at least one deal before their opening Premier League fixture.
