Deportivo Alaves is set to cash out on Wakaso in January
Ghana midfielder Mubarak Wakaso is reported to be one of the possible departures from Deportivo Alaves to pave way for Real Sociedad midfielder Mikel Merino.
According to GOL Digital, the Babazorros El Glorioso will dump the Ghana international to fund their bid for Merino.
Wakaso, 28, has been in good shape for the club side in the ongoing campaign after making 9 appearances to help the Mendizorrotza Stadium outfit to 4th on the league log, but with strong interest from Getafe is forcing the hand of the club to sell the midfielder.
Deportivo Alaves coach Abelardo Fernández has been told he must get rid of some players to generate funds and free up space in his squad for Merino.
The former Newcastle United attacked midfielder's time at Anoeta was blighted by injuries, which prevented him from playing with continuity, but when he did so, he was a key player for Asier Garitano.
Wakaso has joined his teammates in training after playing a starring role for Ghana in their 2-0 win over the Walias of Ethiopia in the 2019 African Cup of Nations qualifier.
