Wolves reported to have shown interest in Bruno Genesio

A surprise report today from RMC Sport has claimed that Wolves have shown interest in Bruno Genesio.

The article focuses on how the 55-year-old has had a really good reason at Rennes, and how he has become one of the most coveted managers in Europe.

Rennes currently sit third in Ligue 1, and can realistically hope to finish runners-up at best, with Paris Saint-Germain too far clear at the top.

Genesio is supposedly likely to continue as Rennes’ manager beyond the summer. Apparently, an extension is being discussed.

Strangely, Wolves are mentioned as one of a few teams to have shown interest in Genesio.

Apparently Tottenham Hotspur and Everton have also shown they are keen, as well as Valencia and Real Sociedad from La Liga and Saudi Arabian outfit Al-Hilal.

It is not made clear when approximately Wolves had interest in Genesio, who has worked with current Wolves player Fernando Marcal before at Lyon.

It could be that Wanderers have him on their radar should Bruno Lage leave his post any time soon, which would be a real shock.

Obviously right now, Wolves are going really well under Lage.

The club sit eighth in the Premier League table, and are on course to finish in and around that position come the end of the season.

After a slow start, the team have picked up some fantastic results and has shown exciting potential under the 45-year-old.

A strange claim from RMC Sport, but football can always throw up surprises

It seems crazy to think that Wolves would be showing interest in another manager right now.

It surely has to be a case of the club just looking at potential replacements in the unlikely event Lage leaves.

That doesn’t feel like something that will happen given how Wolves have done this season.

Perhaps the only way Lage departs Wolves any time soon is if he feels he isn’t suitably backed in the summer transfer window.

But by that point, Genesio might have signed a new contract with Rennes.
