Wolves are chasing Napoli prodigy Amadou Diawara according to Sports Witness.
Apart from signing a young Chinese prospect, Fosun hasn’t yet made an impact in the 19/20 summer transfer window.
Some of the pack are understandably antsy with the Premier League Asia tournament and Europa League qualifying matches taking place next month, but Fosun has reassured that they’re looking to improve the squad (Express & Star).
And Amadou Diawara would be a fantastic start.

Why Wolves should sign Amadou Diawara
Nuno Espirito Santo has reportedly reignited his interest in Napoli midfielder Amadou Diawara.
Wolves were reportedly interested in the midfielder during the 2018/19 January transfer window, but nothing came about.
Tottenham and Watford could stop the move from happening, yet the pack should be excited by the prospect of Diawara gracing Molineux’s pitch.
Napoli are reportedly close to signing Real Madrid outcast James Rodriguez, and this would likely spell the end of Diawara’s Naples career.
And seeing the 21-year-old in the iconic gold and black of Wolves would be beautiful.
Wolves already have a fantastic midfield with Ruben Neves, Joao Moutinho, and Leander Dendoncker, but Diawara would add a ferociousness befitting of the club’s name.
Compared to Dendoncker who is great in the air and at tackling, Diawara is an ill-disciplined nuisance.
However, he’s a significantly better passer.
While the 24-year-old Belgium keeps things simple with short passes, Diawara is an audacious individual who commits a lot of long passes and long-ranged shots.
The Guinean midfielder would provide the competition for first-team places Wolves sorely lacked during the 18/19 season, and he could also possibly be groomed into replacing Neves when the Portuguese ace inevitably leaves.
Neves and Diawara both control the midfield with ambitious passes and shots, but the Guinean international is more of a physical threat at 183cm and 75kg.
