Wolves transfer news: Scouts from two English clubs possibly watched Mario Vuskovic on Sunday

Scouts from two English clubs were in attendance to watch Hamburg’s game with Braunschweig, with the suggestion being reported Wolves target Mario Vuskovic was the focus.

It has been suggested by German publication Bild (and via Liverpool Echo) that Liverpool were one of the English clubs represented at the game.

It is not clear if Wolves scouts were also present.

But recently, Wanderers were linked with a move for the Croatia international, who really impressed for Hamburg last term as they fell agonisingly short of promotion back to the top-flight via the play-off.

It was claimed earlier this month that Wolves were readying an offer for the 20-year-old.

Since those links though, Wolves have gone out and signed Nathan Collins.

The star cost around £20 million to sign from Burnley, and it could well be that Wanderers are no longer in the market for a centre-half.

Vuskovic put in an assured display against Braunschweig in front of those watching scouts, completing 59/61 passes (97%) and winning 5/9 duels (via Sofascore).

A couple of days ago, Bild reported that there had not yet been any offers made for Vuskovic.

It has been suggested that Hamburg would be looking to bank around £8.5 million if they were to sell (via GFNG).

Liverpool interest suggests Vuskovic could be the real deal

Liverpool reportedly scouting Vuskovic would suggest that this is a player with very big potential.

The Reds have had major success with their recruitment over the last few years, so the notion they are keen is worth reading into.

Wolves have obviously signed Collins now, so it seems unlikely at this stage that the club would swoop for another centre-half. There are other position that need filling much more urgently.

Perhaps it would only happen if Willy Boly left the club.

But that doesn’t appear likely, given Wolves already lost one experienced centre-back this summer in Romain Saiss.
