Previous Wolves target Renato Sanches will cost ‘roughly £15 million’ this summer, according to 90min.
Apparently the midfielder is in talks to join AC Milan this summer.
The 24-year-old will only have a year left on his contract at the end of the season. And Lille are ready to cash in on the maestro.
90min say Milan are ‘confident’ of landing the player and also Sven Botman, who is another player who was linked with Wanderers last year.
Apparently, the pair could seal a combined £40 million move to the Italian giants. Botman is apparently set to cost about £25 million.
Sanches was a whisker away from joining Wolves at the start of the current season.
A loan move was in place, but Wolves pulled the plug at the eleventh over concerns about the player’s knee injury at the time.
In the end, Wolves decided to press ahead without signing a new midfielder.
That frustrated many fans, and the decision to let Morgan Gibbs-White depart on loan was also an annoyance for some.
Wolves have been loosely linked with Sanches since the summer. But there have been no claims that Wolves plan to move for him this summer.
But if he is going to cost (roughly) just £15 million, then surely the club have got to reignite their interest.
Potentially, it could be one of the most important deals Wolves do in years.
Wolves have got to challenge AC Milan for Sanches as star receives ridiculously cheap £15 million asking price
If it’s true that Lille could accept as little as £15 million for Sanches, then Wolves simply have to get involved.
He is a player who could totally transform Wolves. He’s the ball-carrier that the midfield has been crying out for.
As good as Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho have been, neither player is really known for picking the ball up and driving through the lines.
Sometimes that is necessary, and Sanches is brilliant at it.
It seems Milan might be quite advanced in their pursuit of him.
But Wolves have got to at least try to make another go of getting him.
If he joins the Rossoneri for £15 million, that would be such a big opportunity missed for Wanderers.
