Club Brugge would reportedly be looking for around £17 million to part with defender Odilon Kossounou, who has recently been linked to Wolverhampton Wanderers.
According to Sport90, the highly-rated Ivory Coast international is now on the radar of Bayer Leverkusen, who are thought to be readying an opening offer of around £8.6 million.
Kossounou has been having a great season over in Belgium.
The 20-year-old has clocked up 36 appearances so far, and in the league Brugge have conceded the fewest goals.
Kossounou’s contributions have been a key reason for that defensive solidity, and it is little wonder there is now a growing list of suitors for a player who has drawn comparisons to Kolo Toure.
Wolves were reported last month by The Sun to be keen on Kossounou, along with the two Milan clubs.
That report also claimed he was keen on a potential move to the Premier League.
A risk worth taking?
Kossounou looks a great prospect, but he is obviously still very young.
£17 million may still be a little steep for someone from the Belgian top-flight.
That said, there certainly needs to be some defensive changes this summer and Kossounou’s potential might just tempt Fosun into pursuing a deal.
