Wolves transfer news: Up to six clubs now interest in Morgan Gibbs-White

Wolves ace Morgan Gibbs-White reportedly has interest from as many as six clubs at the moment.

According to The Athletic, the 22-year-old is hot property after his fantastic loan spell with Sheffield United.

Gibbs-White spent the whole of 2021/22 at Bramall Lane, and flourished as a result of getting regular minutes.

He scored 12 goals and made 10 assists for the club, helping the Blades to reach the play-off semi-final.

There was a cruel end to the campaign for Gibbs-White as he missed the decisive penalty which saw Nottingham Forest reach the play-off final at Wembley.

But it was still a fantastic season for Gibbs-White, who is now attracting a lot of interest in the transfer market.

The Athletic say that up to six clubs are keen on signing the star from Wolves. Forest are hoping that the player’s relationship with Steve Cooper may help them.

Gibbs-White worked with him at Swansea City and also at England U17 level.

Previously there have been reports of interest from AC Milan, Leeds United and Southampton.

Wolves want to keep Gibbs-White and have reportedly offered the player a new contract as a reward for his efforts last season.

Bruno Lage is apparently ready to make him a regular within the first-team.

But it remains to be seen if Gibbs-White is convinced by the club’s plan for him.

It may well be that he wishes to embark on a new adventure, having now been successful away from Molineux.

Wolves ought to keep Gibbs-White, but six clubs being keen is encouraging

Ideally Wolves will keep hold of Gibbs-White this summer and then he will be a regular for the first-team in 2022/23.

But it’s possible he may ultimately want to leave.

Should that be the case, then it’s good that interest in him is so high.

Potentially, a bidding war could break out between the clubs resulting in his market price being driven up.

Realistically, Wanderers raking in around £20-£25 million for the star would be pretty impressive for their academy graduate. And it would be even better if the club were able to agree a sell-on clause.
