The sporting director of Hammarby Jesper Jansson says he isn’t surprised by Odilon Kossounou being linked to big clubs, amid reported interest from Wolverhampton Wanderers.
A report from The Sun has claimed Nuno Espirito Santo’s side are one of a few teams keen on the Club Brugge defender.
Ivory Coast defender Kossounou has been making waves over in Belgium and has supposedly become a target for the likes of AC and Inter Milan, Liverpool and – according to the Mirror – Arsenal.
The 20-year-old has been with Brugge since the summer of 2019, when he joined from Swedish outfit Hammarby.
He only spent six months there, but left a real impression on Jansson, who has spoken about the starlet amid the rumours of a transfer.
He told Fotbollskanalen: “No, I’m not surprised (about the transfer links) because I followed him when he was here.
“We have followed him down in Belgium and his progress at Club Brugge.”
When asked about his reported value of 150 million Swedish Krona (£13 million), he added: “I do not think it will be enough.”
A further suggestion of Kossonou’s potential
So it seems Jansson is a big fan on Kossounou.
To keep up with a player’s progress once they leave is surely a sign they have high hopes for their development.
Wolves could really have their work cut out over the star this summer if there is indeed any interest.
