Wolves have been linked with a swoop for Tosin Adarabioyo before Tuesday’s transfer deadline.
Sky Sports journalist Lyall Thomas tweeted that the Old Gold are keen on the Fulham defender.
Adarabioyo made 33 appearances in the league last term and reportedly had a £10 million release clause in his contract following Fulham’s relegation.
That has apparently expired now but Wolves remain interested as they look to bolster their backline.
Tosin spent the 2018–2019 season on loan at West Brom from Manchester City.
He scored in the penalty shootout defeat to Aston Villa in the Championship play-off semi-finals.
That will always come into consideration when a player is linked with a move to Molineux.
Unsurprisingly, some Wolves fans on Twitter mentioned it when the links emerged.
It should be acknowledged that Tosin is an imposing, quick defender with a huge amount of ability.
Here’s how the rumour went down as Wolves’ search for a new central defender looks set to go right down to the wire.
My suspicion is Botman would be their 1st choice but they’ll only go for him if they bring in money from Neves or Traore. If not they’ll go for the cheaper option of Adarabioyo (supposedly has a £10m release clause) if Neves & Traore both stay & save some available funds for a CM— Nick Goff (@nickgoff79) August 27, 2021
Gonna struggle to get european calibre players unfortunately. TA isn’t even that bad tbh— Alex Hale (@_ahxle) August 26, 2021
He’s not bad but he’s not better than what we’ve got. We need a Defender to take us up a level— Ben (@BVitler) August 26, 2021
No better than Kilman, Boly and Mosquera— Pops (@nakedguyonvespa) August 26, 2021
No better than boly or Kilman— jonathonmark (@williams876) August 26, 2021
Better than saiss— Muhammed mahdi ✌✌ (@MAMMADMEHDI2) August 26, 2021
I think he will turn out to be a proper player. Double Deal for him & Zambo be unreal… if Botman doesn’t come off we need to have a plans & unfortunately this might be more realistic same with Rob Dickie. They’re the 2 CBs in championship who could step up so good to be linked— PavFM (@ThePavFM) August 26, 2021
