Wolves defender Ryan Bennett has reportedly emerged as a target for Fulham.

According to PA News Agency (via Evening Express), the 30-year-old is wanted by the Cottagers to bolster their defence, having already shipped an alarming 10 goals in three Premier League matches.

Bennett spent the second half of last term on loan with Leicester City, where he made just five appearances for the club.

Supposedly Fulham are the next side wanting to take Bennett on loan, as they seek an experienced addition before the October 5 deadline.

The star has just one year remaining on his contract at Molineux, meaning a move to West London could be his audition for a new contract.

Bennett did well for Wolves in the club’s first season back in the Premier League as part of a back three with Conor Coady and Willy Boly, but struggled in the first half of 2019/20.

His spell at Leicester was pretty unsuccessful, and the player should therefore be permitted another temporary move by Nuno Espirito Santo.

His chances of getting regular football at Molineux in 2020/21 are slim, with Ki-Jana Hoever and Fernando Marcal both able to operate as right and left-sided centre-backs respectively if needed.

Romain Saiss has been playing at the back a lot lately, and Leander Dendoncker can also fill in. Then, there is youngster Max Kilman who Nuno may wish to give more game time to.

If Fulham really want £20,000-a-week star Bennett (Spotrac), Wolves officials should not stand in the way of a deal.
