Wolves reportedly want to sign Alex Scott from Bristol City – and the youngster has now come in for praise from Jack Grealish.
Scott is one of the Championship’s best prospects and has really caught the eye this season.
The 19-year-old is thought to be on the radars of many clubs ahead of the summer transfer window.
Scott is a player Wolves have interest in.
Last month, it was reported the club held some talks with the Robins about a potential transfer.
In the end, the club’s asking price of £25 million was too high.
Wolves may hope to move for the player in the summer. He is yet to sign a contract extension at Ashton Gate, meaning the club will be under some pressure to sell.
Last night, Scott’s stock increased further as he put in a fantastic display against Manchester City. Despite a 3-0 loss for Bristol City, Scott played fearlessly and was more than worthy of sharing a pitch with some top-class players.
After the game, Pep Guardiola branded him ‘unbelievable’.
And the praise for Scott has continued today on social media following his display against the Premier League champions.
Scott spoke after the game about sharing a pitch with the likes of Phil Foden and Kevin De Bruyne, and admitted Grealish was his favourite player.
Grealish today quoted the video clip of the interview on Twitter, calling Scott a ‘top top talent’.
That compliment is sure to delight Scott, who carries the nickname the ‘Guernsey Grealish’.

Scott will surely be moving on from Bristol City this summer.
He could easily step up and player for a club in the Premier League, and he likely won’t be short of offers in the next window.
It remains to be seen if Wolves will come calling.
One would imagine they will, having already expressed interest last month.
Scott is an excellent ball carrier and technically very strong, and is also tenacious. To have all these traits is not too common in young midfielders today.
