Wolves may have another chance to sign Franck Kessie

Wolves potentially have another chance to sign Franck Kessie, with the midfielder being linked with an early exit from Barcelona.

The Ivory Coast international only signed for the Spanish giants last summer.

So far, he has only made 15 appearances or the club. And he has only had 244 minutes of game time in La Liga.

Competition for places in midfield is very strong at the Nou Camp.

Kessie is just not in favour with Xavi, and it appears he could actually now be on his way out.

Forbes are reporting information from high profile Spanish journalist Gerard Romero regarding Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Supposedly, Barca are keen to sign him again. But any deal would be dependent on one of Kessie or Memphis Depay leaving. This is so that they can balance Financial Fair Play regulations.

Kessie is a player who was linked with Wolves for years before he moved to Spain.

Wanderers wanted to sign the dynamo back in the summer of 2019. AC Milan were demanding £30 million at the time (via Sky Sports).

Wolves ultimately couldn’t agree terms with the Italian club.

Julen Lopetegui now finds himself needing another central midfielder. Perhaps this could be a chance for Kessie to finally wind up at Molineux.

Wolves and Barcelona have regularly done business, maybe there’s now a chance to sign Franck Kessie

Maybe Wolves could see about making a move for Kessie this month.

At the moment, Joao Moutinho and Boubacar Traore are both injured, and Connor Ronan could depart.

Lopetegui is being linked with a move for Mario Lemina, but he might need another body.

Kessie was a player on Wolves’ radar for a long time and maybe officials will see an opportunity here.

Wolves have a good working relationship with Barcelona having done business over the likes of Nelson Semedo, Francisco Trincao and Adama Traore.

If Kessie is not in their plans, maybe Wanderers could make a move.
