Wolves transfer news: Tottenham have shown interest in Kilman

Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly scouted Wolves defender Maximilian Kilman.

According to CBS journalist Ben Jacobs – who appeared on the Last Word on Spurs podcast – the north Londoners have the 25-year-old on their radar.

But the club have not yet made any approach.

Kilman enjoyed an outstanding season in 2021/22 at Molineux, featuring mainly on the right of a back three despite being left-footed.

Kilman was in the starting XI from the very start of the season with Willy Boly out injured, and the star was regularly a top performer in games for Wolves.

The star’s form was absolutely superb up until around February.

It appeared that the sheer number of games he was playing finally caught up with him, and his level did then dip a bit.

That was unfortunate timing as he was under consideration for a first England call-up.

Kilman regained his form weeks later, but would then suffer an ankle injury in April, ruling him out of Wolves’ last six games.

But all in all it was a fine season from the ball-playing defender, and apparently it did not go unnoticed.

Spurs are monitoring, and it is no surprise to learn they could be keen.

Obviously under Antonio Conte, Tottenham are now playing three at the back with wing-backs – a system Kilman has been very used to.

Wolves must not sell Kilman this summer, amid claims Tottenham have scouted him

Fans would be absolutely outraged if Wolves sold Kilman this summer. There is surely no way club officials would entertain interest in him.

He was absolutely imperious at times last term. Conor Coady branded him ‘incredible’ back in November, and that is definitely a worthy superlative.

The star was a late bloomer, but has absolutely huge potential. He is the complete defender and any decision to sell now would be foolish.

At the moment he is the best defender at Molineux.

And he looks absolutely solid in a back four, which is crucial for this transition that Wolves are seemingly about to make.

Should Tottenham come in with any bid, unless truly astronomical, then Wolves simply must reject it.
