According to reports out of Brazil, Copa Libertadores side Palmeiras have declined an offer from the Seattle Sounders for striker Wesley. Niko Moreno of Sounder at Heart originally reported the details with Head coach Brian Schmetzer confirming the club’s interest during an interview with KJR.
Reports are surfacing that the board has decided not to accept an offer of $6.5million with add-ons for the 22-year-old. The striker currently has a contract that has him at the club until the end of 2024.
The Sounders have a long history of making summertime additions to their roster including those of Raul Ruidiaz and Nicolas Lodeiro so it wouldn’t be out of character for them to continue the hunt – whether they continue discussions with Wesleys camp or not.
