The £13 million-rated Mike Tresor has reportedly informed Genk of his desire to leave with Wolves just one potential Premier League destination for the Belgium international.
Only one player in the whole of Europe produced more assists across all competitions than Mike Tresor in 2022/23. 42 games. Eight goals. 24 more provided for his grateful Genk team-mates. Numbers more readily associated with Belgium team-mates Kevin de Bruyne or a peak-era Eden Hazard.
And with Hazard’s time at the top level seemingly over, with De Bruyne’s own injury problems a cause for concern, do not be surprised to see the former Willem II talisman carry the creative can for the Rote Duivels at Euro 2024.
Mike Tresor an Alex Scott alternative for Wolves
By the time that tournament rolls around, Tresor could have a year of Premier League football under his belt too.
According to the Daily Mail, Brentford have discussed a deal for the 24-year-old set-piece specialist. Crystal Palace, Brighton, Burnley and Nottingham Forest also watched Tresor at times last season – per 90Min – while Wolves could yet emerge as serious suitors after missing out on Alex Scott to Bristol City.

Much to the frustration of the now-departed Julen Lopetegui, Wolves were blown out the water as Bournemouth secured a £25 million deal for former Bristol City starlet Scott. Tresor, however, is reportedly available for around 50 per cent of Scott’s fee.
Het Belang van Limburg add that, in conversions with Genk director Dimitri de Conde, Tresor has informed the Belgian giants of his desire to move on. Genk will not stand in his way either, so long as one of his many suitors are willing to stump up £13 million.
No team scored fewer Premier League goals in 2022/23 than Wolves’ 31. Tresor would add genuine star quality to a side who, for much of the last three years, have possessed far more bark than bite.
