Wolves set to sign promising Paraguayan

Enso Gonzalez is reportedly traveling to England for a medical before joining Wolves on a 6-year deal.

The 18-year-old Paraguayan has played predominately as a left winger during his career and will bolster Wolves attacking options.

He joins from Paraguayan Primera Division side Libertad who will receive a 20% sell-on fee on any potential future move. Wolves will reportedly pay a fee of around £5m for the player, who has been watched by Wolves for a number of months before a bid has been lodged.


Wolves keen on Blackburn midfielder

Wolves are interested in a potential move for Blackburn midfielder Adam Wharton according to Alan Nixon.

Wharton has been valued at around £15m after several Man of the Match performances in the championship last season.


Wolves ‘prioritise’ Strasbourg man

Wolves have reportedly ‘prioritised’ Habib Diarra as a potential transfer target before Friday’s transfer deadline according to Le Quipe.

The fee is likely to exceed €15m as Strasbourg attempt to hang on to the defensive midfielder. Diarra was integral to Strasbourg’s late push to survive relegation from Ligue 1 last season, and the player now appears to be pushing a move out of the club.

European clubs AC Milan, Napoli, AS Roma, Wolfsburg and RC Lens have also shown an interest, with RC Lens having 3 bids rejected so far.

Bueno to join Wolves

Wolves have agreed a deal to sign Girona centre-back, Santiago Bueno.

The Uruguayan international will join Wolves for around £10m, after undergoing his medical today. The 24-year-old is yet to play for Girona this season due to a hamstring injury that ended his 2022/23 season early, however after making the bench in Girona’s last game, he will be looking to move straight into the squad at Wolves.

Wolves will be pleased to see this deal over the line as the fee is significantly less than Bueno’s release clause which stands at €25m.


Wolves ‘enquire’ about Brighton midfielder

Wolves have reportedly enquired about Colombian midfielder Steven Alzate.

The 24-year-old has been at Brighton since 2017 and they are now looking to allow the player to leave before the end of the summer transfer window.

Everton look to rival Wolves to the player, who is also admired by Serie A club Fiorentina and Spanish club Sevilla.

Alzate has endured two loan spells during his time at Brighton as well as making 51 appearances for the Seagulls.

He will be hoping to secure regular first-team football by moving elsewhere.
