Wolverhampton Wanderers are reportedly chasing Brest midfielder Romain Faivre.

Le Telegramme have claimed Wolves are one of a few teams looking at the star, including Paris Saint-Germain.

Sevilla, Borussia Monchengladbach, Bayer Leverkusen and Freiburg have also shown interest.

Faivre, 23, has been with Brest since last year, joining for a €650,000 (£550,000) fee.

He joined them from AS Monaco, for whom he made his debut in December 2018.

The person who gave Faivre his debut was none other than Arsenal and Premier League legend Thierry Henry.

Henry’s time at Monaco was ultimately a huge disappointment, but the blooding of Faivre was seen as one of the best things he did during his short stint there.

He was quite the fan of Faivre, telling So Foot earlier this year: “Sofiane Diop, Benoit Badiashile, Romain Faivre. These are players I helped to develop as best I could and I’m happy for that.


“Romain Faivre has something few players have – he breaks lines.”

Faivre has four years remaining on his contract with Brest, putting the Ligue 1 side in a strong position.

Faivre could be a great addition

Wolves could do with another central midfielder and Faivre could be a great signing.

It’s not clear how much he would cost, but the fact he can break lines should make him worthy of consideration.

According to GFFN last year, ‘there’s something of champagne football about Faivre’s style’ and the maestro is also handy on set-pieces.

Maybe Wolves should be looking to make some further enquiries.
