Wolves star Owen Otasowie has reportedly drawn attention from a number of teams – including two from the Premier League.

It has been claimed in the last few days that Club Brugge have tabled an offer for the player.

Supposedly that bid is worth around £3.4 million, but Wolves want nearer to £5 million (The Athletic).

It seems the Belgian champions may not have had a straight run at the 20-year-old.

Belgian publication Voetbalkrant mention their interest, but also claim Everton and West Ham United have been keen, as well as Ajax and Schalke.

All the teams are said to have had ‘concrete interest’.

Voetbalkrant do suggest Brugge are winning the race. They say the player is more likely to get regular minutes there, and that a move is ‘very close’.

It is a bold claim, with Otasowie having made just six Premier League appearances to date.

 

Last season after being handed his debut, the midfielder didn’t really kick on as fans hoped.

During times of struggle, former manager Nuno Espirito Santo called on his more experienced options, like Joao Moutinho and Leander Dendoncker.

Everton and West Ham links a surprise

It seems Brugge is the most likely destination for Otasowie.

It would have been a real surprise if one of Everton or West Ham came in for Otasowie. Especially given how little he has featured in the Premier League.

Perhaps scouts had seen him in action for the U23s, for whom he has often looked one of the best players.

Wolves value the youngster at £5 million, and it will be very interesting to see if any of the two English sides try and scupper Brugge’s move for the player.

It’s unlikely a sale to either the Toffees or the Hammers would go down particularly well with supporters.
