Supposedly he will cost around £4.5 million.

Mosquera is a Colombian defender. He is currently plying his trade with Atletico Nacional.

He made his breakthrough last season. The South American is viewed as Colombia’s next big defensive hope.

Supposedly Wolves have beat the likes of Manchester United and Manchester City to the youngster (Daily Mail).

It’s been claimed that Mosquera will be in and around the first-team. One wonders if that could hasten Dion Sanderson’s exit from the club

Sanderson was hugely impressive on loan at Sunderland in 2020/21.


The central defender supposedly has a host of clubs on his tail, including the Black Cats who want him permanently.

Sanderson set for exit?

Mosquera coming into the club could well be ominous for Sanderson.

That he’ll be a part of Bruno Lage’s first-team squad makes it hard to see where the Englishman will fit.

From here, it would be no surprise if Mosquera pushed Sanderson towards the exit.

That would be a disappointment for many who have hoped for Sanderson to be given a first-team chance.

There is the possibility that Mosquera could be coming in as a replacement for Max Kilman.

Realistically though, the noise surrounding Sanderson in recent months makes him the more likely departee.
