Wolves have been recently linked with a swoop for Italian international Lorenzo Insigne.

The Euro 2020 winner’s contract situation means he is free to organise a pre-contract agreement in January.

As per the Daily Mail, he recently said: ‘I only think about playing and about what happens on the pitch. ‘My agent takes care of the other issues.

“I always put the team in front, I always work hard and I always arrive with a smile. I don’t think about the contract, there’s time to discuss with the club. My agent and the club will take care of it, I still have one year.”

They report that those comments have put Tottenham and their boss Nuno Espirito Santo on alert.

Daniel Levy loves a bargain and it would be no surprise if he tried his utmost to get an experienced international forward on a free.


But Insigne would be a huge coup for Wolves too, and some fans on Twitter were buzzing with the links.

A potential swoop is a long way off happening. Insigne would need to let his contract situation dwindle further, for a start.

If he got to January in that situation, plenty of clubs would be in for him, including Wolves.

It would be galling to see a target go to Tottenham under Nuno, although his reign has hit the rocks lately and it will be interesting to see the position he’s in by January anyway.
