Juventus set price for reported Wolves target
Following reports last weekend that Wolves were interested in Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain, Juventus have reportedly set an asking price for the Argentine.
According to Corriere dello Sport, the Italian giants will be looking for €18 million for the 32 year old who has 12 months left of his contract.
Premier League rivals Newcastle United are reportedly also interested in Higuain and could also make a move if their takeover goes ahead as planned.
We had reported this news in one of our previous Wolves rumours updates but it’s unclear whether there is any interest coming out Molineux. Higuain, 32, doesn’t fit the usual profile for players that Wolves and Fosun have recruited since their arrival. The club now look for younger players who are more likely to improve and come into their peak in their later years where the club can benefit more if the player were to be sold. However, Wolves did bring in Joao Moutinho who was a similar age to Higuain so let’s not rule this one out completely just yet.
Wolves show interest in Valladolid defender
El Desmarque has reported that Wolves have shown an interest in Real Valladolid defender Mohamed Salisu. A number of clubs are chasing the Ghanaian centre back including Atletico Madrid, Bologna, Manchester United and even Watford and Southampton more recently.
However, it is stated that French club Stade Rennes are leading the race to sign the 21-year old who has a £10 million release clause.
It has been reported previously that Wolves were looking to strengthen the centre back department in the upcoming transfer window so this could be one to keep our eye on. With Ryan Bennett looking to have played his last game in the old gold and black for Wolves, it’s looking increasingly likely that Nuno will be bringing in defensive reinforcements for the next season – whenever that may be.
Danny Loader on Wolves’ transfer radar again
Wolves are ready to reignite their interest in Reading youngster Danny Loader according to Sky Sports. The 19 year old’s contract is set to expire next month and Wolves are keen to pounce for the striker’s signature.
It’s said that ‘several’ Premier League clubs are interested in Loader, who had agreed terms with Wolves last summer before Reading pulled the plug on the deal.
Loader has spent his entire senior career at Reading, scoring one goal.
