Wolves transfer news: Inter Miami ready to exercise buy option on Leonardo Campana

Inter Miami are reportedly preparing to trigger their buy option on Wolves striker Leonardo Campana.

The MLS club have had Campana on loan since January of this year.

The Ecuador international has enjoyed a productive spell over in the States, scoring 13 goals in 28 games.

Wolves signed Campana back in 2020 on a three-and-a-half-year deal, after he had played 20 times for Barcelona SC.

He was loaned out to Portuguese outfit Farmalicao in September 2020 having spent time in the youth ranks at Wolves.

He then went to Swiss side Grasshopper last season.

But Campana’s stock has really risen since joining Inter, and journalist Tom Bogert has now reported that the club are now finalising a deal to sign him permanently.

The fee is reportedly worth around £2.3 million.

Campana has yet to make an appearance for the Wolves first-team since coming to Molineux.

And it seems he will now be departing without pulling on the old gold shirt.

A nice little profit for Wolves as Inter Miami prepare to sign Leonardo Campana

So it looks like Wolves will be turning a small profit on Campana.

Given his great form, Campana’s market value might actually be higher than the £2.3 million Inter are set to pay.

But it is good work from Wolves to have taken an unknown young player and used the loan system to make a profit.

Some will wonder if Campana might have been able to do a job for Wolves in the Premier League.

But the club perhaps don’t feel he is quite at that standard.
