Some Wolves fans have been reacting to a report that has claimed Gareth Southgate is monitoring Max Kilman ahead of a potential England call-up.
The central defender has enjoyed an outstanding season so far.
The 24-year-old has been selected at every turn by Bruno Lage, and hasn’t yet missed a single minute in 2021/22.
He was in and out of the side under Nuno Espirito Santo last term.
But he’s responded well to the managerial change in the summer and is now flourishing.
According to The Athletic, Kilman’s form has caught the attention of Three Lions boss Southgate.
Southgate was present to see Kilman score his first ever goal for Wolves against Everton at the start of the month.
He was superb that night, and some had hoped he’d be called into the squad for the last World Cup qualifiers.
It wasn’t to be that time, but perhaps 2022 will be his year.
Wolves fans react as Gareth Southgate eyes Max Kilman for England
Some Wolves fans have been expressing their delight that Kilman is now in Southgate’s crosshairs.
Realistically, Kilman should now be in the squad.
he was very unfortunate to miss out last time around.
He has been better than Tyrone Mings, who was dropped for Aston Villa’s game against West Ham United, and Manchester United’s Harry Maguire.
Wolves have generally gone under the radar a bit this season so that might have counted against Kilman.
In the eyes of Wolves fans though, an England call-up would be hugely deserved:
He’d smash it

Be absolute joke if this don’t get recognised for the form and effort, he has been absolutely amazing for us.

He’d thrive having some international experience.

Ceiling is very high. He has all the tools. I’m glad the @Wolves extended his contract. He is definitely a value on that back line.
