Reported Wolves target Calvin Bassey names in SPFL Team of the Season

Calvin Bassey, who has been linked with Wolves recently, has been named in the official SPFL Team of the Season.

The 22-year-old has been recognised for a fantastic campaign with Rangers, in which he made 50 appearances across all competitions.

Bassey finished the season as a runner-up in the league, but did help Rangers to win a Scottish Cup.

He also made big contributions for Rangers in their brilliant run to the Europa League final.

Bassey put in two outstanding performances in those finals.

And since then, there has been some speculation about his future.

Charlie Nicholas recently stated that he felt Rangers could command £25 million for Bassey this summer. He also called him better than Tyrone Mings.

He’s wanted by Aston Villa, but Wanderers have also been linked with the player.

Wolves, of course, are losing Romain Saiss and Fernando Marcal this summer.

The pair are leaving on expiry of their contracts, and Bassey is capable of playing as a left sided centre-back and a left-back.

Positionally, he would potentially make for a really good addition for Wolves.

It’s clear following his inclusion in the SPFL Team of the Season that he’s a player with brilliant promise.

The SPFL’s description of the player read: “A revelation in the Rangers backline, the 22-year-old began to show his real quality as the season progressed. Whether deployed at left-back or at centre-back, Bassey performed to a remarkable level not only in the league, but in Rangers’ deep runs in cup competitions at home and abroad.”

It remains to be seen if Wolves will come in with a bid.

Bassey really caught the eye in 2021/22, and he looks to be a really solid defender.

That said, Bruno Lage does have Toti Gomes to call on as a potential left sided centre-back. And Max Kilman can also play on that side.

So it would be no surprise if there was no approach, and Wolves instead went for a right-footer.
