Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder Owen Otasowie is reportedly closing in on a move to Club Brugge.

According to HLN in Belgium, the USA international is set to become the club’s third signing of the summer.

It’s claimed by the publication that the 20-year-old is set to move for around €4 million/£3.4 million.

They say, barring any surprises, an announcement of the move should arrive ‘soon’.

Otasowie struggled for minutes for the first-team last season.

After making his Premier League debut against Chelsea in December, he just couldn’t oust Ruben Neves, Leander Dendoncker and Joao Moutinho from the starting XI.

In the end, he only made six appearances for a total of 185 minutes.

 

It had been claimed by The Athletic that Wolves had been hoping for around £5 million for the youngster.

Otasowie may be the one that got away

So it seems Otasowie could be off.

It is going to be interesting to see how he gets on over in Belgium.

Obviously Brugge are in the Champions League this season, so it’s a great opportunity for him.

He’s a young player with lots of ability.

It remains a bit of a mystery why he didn’t get much game time under Nuno Espirito Santo, but it could well be that he flourishes if he is afforded regular minutes by Brugge.
