Wolves would reportedly need to fork out at least £26 million to sign Sevilla goalkeeper Bono.
According to Vamos Mi Sevilla FC, the star is closely followed by both Wolves and Aston Villa.
Bono made headlines this week for being the hero for Morocco against Spain. He produced three saves in the penalty shootout to send his nation in the last eight of the World Cup.
Predictably, Bono – who has 49 caps for his country – is now the subject of transfer speculation.
If Sevilla are to sell in the January window, they would demand north of £26 million for Bono.
That is much less than his £43 million release clause. But it is still a hefty price to pay.
But then, Sevilla are fully justified to ask for however much they like, with the player under contract until 2025.
Bono, a Europa League winner with Sevilla in 2020, has a reputation for being very good at saving penalties.
According to data from Transfermarket, he’s stopped 13 in his club career to date, one if which came against Wolves’ very own Raul Jimenez.
He denied the Mexican when the teams faced off in the Europa League in 2020.

Bono is a fantastic goalkeeper, and his ability to save penalties is very impressive.
But right now Wolves need to be focusing on strengthening in other areas.
Jose Sa has proven himself as one of the top goalkeepers in the Premier League since his arrival at Molineux.
He might not be in the best form right now, but Wolves have seen his quality. He has enough credit in the bank to warrant a show of faith.
His understudy Matija Sarkic is waiting in the wings for a chance, and has looked good in the Carabao Cup.
So if Sa’s form dips, the Montenegro should be handed the chance to impress. It just doesn’t feel like a move for Bono would be really worth it.
