Wolves have been chasing Napoli prodigy Amadou Diawara for a while now, and the club is reportedly set to miss out again thanks to the Guinean midfielder preferring a move to Roma (Sky Italia).

Other than selling Kortney Hause  to Aston Villa (BBC) and signing a young Chinese prospect, Wolves haven’t done anything in the 19/20 summer transfer window.

And time is quickly running out as the Premier League Asia trophy and Europa League qualifying rounds are fast approaching.

Amadou Diawara rejects Wolves for Roma

Wolves  wanted to sign Amadou Diawara from Napoli back in January and during the past few weeks, but the 21-year-old has supposedly rejected a move to England for Roma.

This is a major blow to any naive Wolves fans who believe that the club is now an attractive location for everyone.

Diawara would’ve been a great option for the midfield as he would’ve added depth and competition for first-team places.

Not only that, but he could’ve also been the ideal replacement for when Ruben Neves inevitably leaves.

His rejection is proof that not every promising and talented individual will immediately jump ship to Wolves despite them being on the rise.

Molineux could be home to Europa League football next season, but Fosun will still need to be shrewd to convince talent to move to the Black Country.

And the pack must not allow their egos to be deflated by any rejections from top-class players.

Wolves have only just entered the Europa League after a 40-year absence, meaning it’ll be a while before foreign players at top clubs eye Molineux as an attractive destination.

They don’t care about the club’s rich history and Wolves once prominent status won’t be a viable negotiation pitch.

Fosun and the pack will need to be patient and consistent in order to acquire the talent that will actually improves Wolves rather than steal a living and disrupt the dressing room.
