TRANSFER LATEST: Reports suggest Sunderland are tracking international team-mate of Wahbi Khazri

New, comments

Sunderland are interested in Tunisian international midfielder Ghailene Chaalali according to reports in his homeland.

Wahbi Khazri is expected to leave Sunderland this summer, the 27-year-old is in demand after a stellar season on loan at Rennes in Ligue 1 but as one Tunisian international is set to depart, another may come in to replace him.

According to reports in Tunisia, Sunderland are tracking Espérance midfielder Ghailene Chaalali.

24-year-old Chaalali mainly plays as a central midfielder but can also cover out wide, both at full-back and on the wing.

Chaalali - like Khazri - is in the Tunisian squad for the forthcoming World Cup in Russia, so no deal will be possible until after the tournament but Espérance are reportedly looking for around €1m for the player.

He has been a regular for his club as they won their domestic league for two consecutive seasons.
