Kasimpasa vice president Hasan Hilmi Oksuz has spoken to Bein Sports Turkey about the latest developments surrounding Mahmoud Hassan’s future at the club.
Hassan, commonly known as Trezeguet, has been linked with Watford in recent weeks after claims the Premier League side are lining up an offer for the player.
Speaking to Bein Sports Turkey, Oksuz confirmed there are offers on the table from clubs abroad: “I can confirm there’s a release clause in his contract which is €5m. I am not aware of any interest from Galatasaray as we only want cash. Clubs in Turkey will probably struggle to pay that kind of money in cash.
“I know that there are clubs from abroad keeping tabs on him. For us, the situation is very clear. Anyone who pays €5m in cash will get the player.”
Watford are said to be keen to sign Trezeguet and were willing to pay €6m for the player, but it seems they can get him for less.
It’s likely Watford would have to wait until after the World Cup to get a deal completed for the attacker as he’s set to represent Egypt in Russia, but they can agreed at any time with Kasimpasa.
Trezeguet played 33 games for Kasimpasa last season, scoring 16 goals and providing 8 assists.
