Wolves transfer news: Journalist suggests Wolves could make Harry Maguire move

Wolves could reportedly be in the mix to sign Harry Maguire this summer.

Julen Lopetegui brought in Craig Dawson in January, and the 32-year-old has been a revelation for Wanderers.

Nathan Collins, Max Kilman and Toti Gomes are the other options at Molineux.

But Wolves could see about expanding their pool of options in the summer, and CBS journalist Ben Jacobs has claimed that the club could potentially move for Manchester United defender Maguire.

Maguire has had a difficult season at Old Trafford.

Erik ten Hag has often selected Lisandro Martinez and Raphael Varane at the back over the 30-year-old.

The England star has not really been in favour, and now there is talk he could leave at the end of the season.

Jacobs said (TEAMtalk): “And I think Wolves could be one to watch as well even though they tend to buy a little bit younger. And the reason for that is because Max Kilman is going to be in demand over the summer period.

“More generally, I think that Wolves could be looking for right-sided and left-sided centre-back. So they could be one to watch for Maguire.

“But there’s a lot of admiration from one or two Premier League clubs for Maguire because they know that they’d be getting a leader and an experienced player.”

Kilman has recently been linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool.

Wolves would likely demand a big fee to sell him though. The star is under contract at Molineux until 2026.

Harry Maguire could be a good signing for Wolves, depending on the terms

Maguire has struggled for the most-part at Manchester United.

He joined the club for a huge £80 million fee and was also handed the captaincy shortly after. Potentially, these things have affected him.

He was excellent at Leicester City, and Wolves’ backline does not play as high as United’s. He would therefore probably suit playing for Wanderers much more than United. There is less of a risk of him being done for pace and getting dragged out of position.

Maguire probably needs to leave United this summer. And it remains to be seen if Wolves come calling.

If Kilman happens to leave – which is not something that should really be entertained – then he would be worth considering.

At the moment though, he is reportedly on huge wages of £190,000-a-week. His demands could well be a stumbling block.
