Hull City have been linked with a move for Udinese defender Molla Wague in the Italian media. The Mali international spent last season on loan with Leicester City, but his spell with the Premier League side never took off due to injury.

TMW have reported Hull City are interested in Wague, and that they’ve made an approach for the central defender.

The Championship side sold Harry McGuire to Leicester City this summer, and it seems they’re looking to fill the void left by the player. It’s also been reported Hull City can expect competition from Ligue 1 side Lille to land Wague, with claims they’ve contacted Udinese.

Wague arrived at Leicester City in January, but played just 70 minutes in the Foxes’ FA Cup clash against Millwall, before picking up an injury. The shoulder injury ruled the 26 year old out for the rest of the season, and he’s since returned to Udinese.

Wague is contracted to the Serie A side until June 2019.
