“Rising Star Elye Wahi of Montpellier Poised for a Thrilling Transfer Window”

By FPL360


Elye Wahi’s incredible performance against Olympique Lyon, in which he scored all four goals for his team, has placed the Montpellier forward in the radar of many European clubs in search of a top-level forward. Wahi’s market value has more than doubled from €12 million to €25m since he started his professional career at Montpellier. Wahi has scored 17 goals and five assists in 30 Ligue 1 games this season, taking his total tally to 33 goals and eight assists in 99 games across all competitions.

Wahi is building off an impressive 2021/22 season where he scored ten goals and two assists in 33 games, showing that his growth has been steady. The 20-year-old is praised for his speed and dribbling skills, typical qualities of a winger, yet his versatility near the goal and ability to score from many different situations make him a unique forward.

Transfermarkt Area Manager France Ronan Caroff points out that Wahi is a typical modern striker who can play several roles in the attack, similar to PSG star Kylian Mbappé. While Wahi was sent off once this season, he has not yet reached his ceiling, and his coaches believe there is still room for improvement.

Reports link Wahi with a move to Arsenal, Newcastle, Frankfurt, Dortmund, and RB Leipzig, all in need of a forward of his quality. Arsenal and Newcastle will likely qualify for the Champions League and might require more depth in the forward line. The same is true for Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund, which is losing Christopher Nkunku to Chelsea. Leipzig has already been linked to Lille forward Jonathan David. As for Frankfurt, losing Randal Kolo Muani to Bayern Munich might require finding a suitable replacement, and Wahi could indeed be the perfect choice for his compatriot.

As the transfer season heats up, Wahi is a name to remember. While his career had a rocky start, he has found stability and is steadily improving, which has earned him recognition from bigger European clubs. Wahi’s future is bright, and his abilities as a modern forward, allied with his versatility, make him a valuable player for any team.
