Report: Wolves targeting Club Brugge defender Odilon Kossounou

Wolverhampton Wanderers are reportedly targeting Club Brugge defender Odilon Kossounou.

According to The Sun, Nuno Espirito Santo is ready to try and bolster his backline, and has the Ivory Coast international teammate of Willy Boly in his sights.

The 20-year-old has been making a name for himself over in Belgium, and has caught the attention of a number of clubs.

Inter and AC Milan are both thought to be keen, as well as Liverpool.

The Daily Mirror have also stated that Arsenal – who have been linked with Boly in the past (The Sun, October 2019) – are sniffing.

It is thought that Kossounou could cost in the region of £20 million.

Brugge are currently flying high in the Belgian First Division A, and are 13 points clear at the top having shipped just 18 goals in 26 games.

Kossounou has been a regular in the side, and also has experience of playing in the Champions League and the Europa League, which Brugge are currently in facing Dynamo Kyiv.

New CB a priority for Wolves

Wolves are showing signs of getting back to their best defensively at present, but fans know the board need to be bringing in a new recruit this summer.

There are question marks about Conor Coady in a back four, and Kossounou has experience playing in the two systems Wolves have been using this season.

The star – who can also play as a holding midfielder – seems to have great potential, and could be a great fit with Boly to perhaps take him under his wing.
