Wolves have been credited with an interest in midfielder Okay Yokuşlu by Sky Sports.
They claim that Bruno Lage faces a battle with Watford to sign the 27-year-old.
The report says that Yokuşlu, who has 35 international caps for Turkey, is on the market for £5 million this summer.
He of course spent last season on loan at West Brom and is apparently keen to return to the Premier League.
Who was he on loan at Wolves’ bitter rivals from? Celta Vigo, who are tomorrow’s visitors to Molineux.
As luck would have it, Wolves will get a chance to see their reported target up close in their final pre-season game.
Yokuşlu went to Euro 2020 with Turkey, but following their group stage exit, he returned to Celta training last month and has played in their friendly fixtures since.
That adds an extra dimension to tomorrow’s match, which is Lage’s last chance to fine-tune his team before the Premier League campaign starts.
Would he be a good signing?
Yokuşlu ticks a lot of boxes. He settled straight into life in the Premier League last term, and shone in a sub-standard West Brom side.
At 27, he’s got experience but still time to improve and £5 million looks like a very reasonable price.
He can put his foot in but also has the technical ability to pass the ball well from the base of midfield.
A strong performance at Molineux tomorrow – and there’s no obvious reason why he shouldn’t play some part – could convince Wolves to put the money on the table.
