Wolves are among a host of clubs chasing Brest midfielder Romain Faivre this summer, according to reports in France.
Le Telegramme claim that Wolves are the only English club in the hunt, but Faivre is also wanted by Paris Saint-Germain.
Sevilla. Borussia Monchengladbach, Bayer Leverkusen and Freiberg are also apparently interested, but no club has submitted an offer yet.
The 23-year-old can play on both flanks and as a central midfielder and has represented France at Under 21 level.
PSG will prove tough to compete with financially, but that doesn’t mean the chase is a foregone conclusion.
Wolves would be able to offer Faivre more gametime than Mauricio Pochettino, who is trying to juggle a bloated squad of stars.
Their priority also looks like Paul Pogba, and the French giants seemingly need to sell a host of players just to fund that deal.
So perhaps Wolves could steal in and sign Faivre, who would cost 18 million euros (£15.4 million), as per Le10 Sport.
At 23, Faivre has plenty of time to improve and wouldn’t break the bank, despite the heavy competition for his signature.
Perhaps he would be viewed as a central midfield option if he signed, but at the minute he’s a wide, attacking midfielder. Do Wolves need another one of those?
Central defender and central midfielder are the priorities for Wolves before the window closes at the end of the month.
Time will tell how Wolves’ interest develops and where Faivre’s future lies.
