Our View: Report claiming Wolves' interest in Ramsey is dead should surprise no-one

Reports in Italy claim Wolves’ interest in Aaron Ramsey is dead. Il Bianconero claim AC Milan are now favourites to sign him.

Wolves were linked with the playmaker, who has 67 caps for Wales, last month. The whispers first appeared in February.

But Wolves fans on Twitter saw through it straight away. They didn’t think he’d come.

Think about it. Wolves need a centre-half, a central midfielder and a backup striker before the end of the transfer window.

The latest reports on how they’re going to raise the money for those new faces claims Romain Saiss, Rafa Mir, Owen Otasowie and maybe Patrick Cutrone will be sold.

Ramsey reportedly earns £400,000-a-week. Those wages simply aren’t compatible with what Wolves can afford.

The interest always looked like being a non-starter. If he comes in before the end of the window, your writer will look silly, but it would require a huge alteration in Ramsey’s wage demands.

As well as seemingly a major u-turn from both Wolves and Ramsey. The report claims he wants to join a club playing European football.

There don’t appear to be hugely advanced targets for any of those key positions of interest mentioned above at this stage.

Of course, Danny Ings’ move to Aston Villa showed that sometimes deals can happen without any speculation beforehand.

How Wolves fans would dearly love a new face out of the blue. Maybe to launch the third kit?

But if this latest report is to be trusted, it won’t be Ramsey. And that should surprise absolutely no-one.
