Wolves accept Nottingham Forest’s bid for Morgan Gibbs-White
Wolves have accepted a bid of £25 million for Morgan Gibbs-White from Nottingham Forest as first reported by the Telegraph.
There are also between £7-10 million in likely addons plus further ambitious add-ons more difficult to achieve up to maximum of £42.5m.
It’s a saga that has ran on for the whole of this window and it was always felt that Gibbs-White would move on eventually.
Wolves had offered Gibbs-White a new deal in May this year but has shown no signs of wanting to sign the contract so Wolves have decided to move the player on.
The club are desperate not to see a repeat of the Adama Traore situation and with only two years left on Gibbs-White’s current deal, the right decision has been made.
Morgan is in Nottingham today to complete his medical and join Forest and he will become their 16th signing of the window.
Wolves are still interested in Ramos – but other clubs are pressing for a deal
Wolves still hold an interest in Benfica forward Goncalo Ramos but they are not the only club pushing for a deal.
It was reported yesterday that Southampton have held talks with Benfica over a £25 million move for the striker.
Newcastle still hold an interest but it’s thought Southampton are further along the process than the Magpies.
Wolves had offered a loan with an obligation to buy of €30 million but Benfica rejected this proposal and Wolves are yet to go back in with a fresh offer.
Ramos has been among the goals for Benfica already this season and impressed against Dynamo Kyiv in the Champions League last night.
Wolves still want to bring in another striker this window and the funds generated from the Morgan Gibbs-White deal could help secure this.
Wolves keen on Vitoria midfielder but are put off by clubs valuation
Wolves and Porto still hold an interest in Andre Almeida but both clubs believe the price Vitoria are demanding for the midfielder is too high according to Pedro Sepúlveda.
It was said that Sporting were keen on Almeida to replace Matheus Nunes but head coach Ruben Amorim doesn’t believe he has the same attributes to be able to replace Nunes.
The 22-year-old was highlighted in Talking Wolves’ recruitment video with Dan Butler and possess great passing and ball carrying qualities.
Almeida has one year left on his current deal (with an option of an extra year in the clubs favour) and is valued at €10 million by Vitoria.
