He is one of the top prospects in Argentinian football right now.

That’s saying something considering the likes of Julian Alvarez and Enzo Fernandez have both come to the fore in the last year.

Wolves are thought to have an interest in Alcaraz.

He was actually first reported to be on Wanderers’ radar back in early 2021. But just lately, there have been more reports about Wolves potentially making a move for the South American.

Last night, Ed Aarons of The Guardian tweeted that Wolves are indeed interested. He also said that he would cost in the region of £17 million.

According to SIC Noticias journalist Pedro Sepulveda, Alcaraz will not be heading to Benfica this month in what seems like a potential boost for Wolves.

It had been claimed that the Portuguese giants were keen on the starlet. They are about to lose Enzo Fernandez to Chelsea and need to replace him.

But they seemingly won’t be turning to Alcaraz, with Sepulveda mysteriously claiming it was ‘after learning about some behaviors of the 20-year-old midfielder’.

He does not specify what these ‘behaviours’ are.

This claim from Sepulveda is interesting.

Alcaraz is huge talent, so for Benfica to end their pursuit is worth reading into.

It remains to be seen what Wolves will do now.

It seems like there is real interest from Julen Lopetegui and Molineux officials. Hopefully they will look into everything about the player to determine whether a move should be pursued.
