Hull City are facing a battle to hang on to Egyptian star Ahmed Elmohamady this summer, Goal understands.

Elmohamady was ever present for Hull in the Premier League  as the Tigers also reached the FA Cup final before losing to Arsenal.

Goal understands Southampton, QPR and West Ham are all considering making official bids for the player, while there is also interest from Turkish giants Galatasaray and Besiktas, as well as clubs from the Middle East.

The 26-year-old has been a huge success at the KC Stadium since reuniting with Steve Bruce in 2012.

Bruce brought the Egyptian to England with Sunderland in 2011, and signed the versatile wide man on loan for the 2012-13 season as Hull were promoted back to the Premier League.

Elmohamady is understood to be happy playing under Bruce and has two years left on his current deal, but it remains to be seen if Hull would be able to resist a sizeable bid for his services.
