Feyenoord pays a fixed amount of 3.25 million euros for the arrival of Patrik Wälemark, reports Feyenoord Transfermarkt Friday evening. The transfer fee for the right winger annex attacking midfielder of BK Häcken can increase by one million euros via bonuses, while the club from Sweden has negotiated a resale percentage of fifteen percent.

With the fixed transfer fee of 3.25 million euros, Wälemark is in the top twenty most expensive purchases of all time from Feyenoord. Club Brugge and Sampdoria would also have bid on Wälemark, but see the Rotterdam team run off with the loot. aftonbaldet reported last Tuesday that Häcken had received bids between 2 and 2.5 million euros. Because Wälemark had a contract until December 2024, his club only wanted to cooperate with higher bids. Only when amounts ‘between 4 and 5 million euros’ were offered, the number twelve of the Allsvenskan was willing to listen.

Walemark has been playing for Häcken since January 2020, which took him over from Qviding FIF. Since then, he has made 54 appearances for Häcken, scoring 12 goals and providing 13 assists. With 9 goals and 7 assists in 29 official games, Walemark has had an excellent season. “I think Patrik will be motivated by the interest. He is such a type,” said Häcken coach Per-Mathias Högmo recently about the wide interest in Wälemark. “It doesn’t make him nervous, but just sharp and motivated.”

Technical director of Feyenoord Frank Arnesen confirmed on Friday Football International in addition to the arrival of Wälemark, also that the arrival of Cole Bassett to Rotterdam is complete. The American midfielder comes over from Colorado Rapids and serves as an alternative to Riechedly Bazoer, whose arrival proved financially unfeasible. He is probably rented for a year and a half.
