ROUND UP OF THE LATEST WOLVES JANUARY TRANSFER RUMOURS
According to Football Insider Wolves are looking to sign a striker in this January window but only have the resources to agree a loan deal. With both Fabio Silva and Sasa Kalajdzic departing on loan Wolves must surely be confident of bringing in a replacement.
Following initial reports from France claiming Wolverhampton Wanderers are interested in signing Hugo Ekitike from Paris Saint Germain, it seems Wolves have indeed started to make their moves to get the transfer done. Wolves are thought to want a loan deal with option to buy, Transfermarkt currently values the player at €15m, and perhaps the amount for the buying option will be crucial to decide who will win the race for the transfer. Jorge Mendes has close ties with both clubs and it’s thought he could help broker a deal.
It’s interesting that West Ham fans think they were in for Ekitke and that Wolves are trying to hijack this deal in order to secure Dany Ings who won’t be allowed to leave the club until they have a replacement.
Wolves are reported to be interested in 25 year old Greek striker Vangelis Pavlidis currently at AZ Alkmaar. He has18 goals in 16 games in the Eredivisie this season and 22 goals in 27 games in all competitions. Wolves would need to offer more than €15m for him as AC Milan have already seen a bid for that figure rejected and the player is attracting interest from both Premier League and Bundesliga clubs.
Real Sociedad are interested in signing Pablo Sarabia. The forward has just started to show some form in the Premier League as he has more playing time due to Pedro Neto’s injury. Pablo is one of Wolves big earners at around £90k per week, however it is unlikely that Wolves will be willing to sell him at this point in time.
Wolves recalled Luke from Plymouth Argyle and he will now spend the remainder of the season on loan at Stoke City.
Wolves had been linked with a loan move for Liverpool’s Fabio Carvalho but according to reports in The Athletic he will be joining Championship side Hull on loan. Guaranteed playing minutes is thought to be a factor in the negotiations.
