Offer on the table for Otasowie, Wolves want £5 million

Wolves midfielder Owen Otasowie is currently the subject of interest from Club Brugge.

The USA international’s future is up in the air, with the player having struggled to make a breakthrough last season.

He ended up making six appearances for the club, after making his debut against Chelsea in December.

According to Wolves reporter for The Athletic Tim Spiers, there has been a bid of £3.4 million in the table for over a week from Brugge for Otasowie.

It seems the club won’t be accepting that particular offer, with Spiers saying the club will look to push nearer towards the £5 million mark.

He adds that the player’s potential exit from the club looks ‘extremely likely’ at this stage.

Any sale of Otasowie is like to split supporters.

There are some who believe the youngster was treated a little harshly last term by Nuno Espirito Santo. They believe he should have got more chances as the team struggled.

But there are others who have not been convinced and believe the club should be looking to offload if he isn’t keen to stay.

Wolves need to make a decision quickly

If the plan is to sell Otasowie, his exit needs facilitating quickly.

Surely if an offer has been on the table for over a week, a final decision must be close.

The funds that his sale would generate can be put towards other deals. It’s widely known that the club are after a new central defender.

The club’s first game of the season is on Saturday against Leicester City.

Getting one or two new faces in in the coming days would certainly be most welcome.
