Wolves transfer news: Wanderers chasing Sevilla star Marcos Acuna

Wolves are reportedly one of four clubs chasing Sevilla star Marcos Acuna.

According to Vamos Mi Sevilla FC, who cover all things related to Julen Lopetegui’s former club, the Argentina international has emerged as a target for Wanderers ahead of January.

Apparently, he is one of three players Sevilla officials have informed that they are surplus to requirements. The others are Adnan Januzaj and Papu Gomez.

There are supposedly several options already on the table for left-back Acuna.

As well as Wolves, there is interest from Inter Milan, Eintracht Frankfurt and Villarreal.

It is stated that Sevilla would be holding out for at least £10 million for the 31-year-old, whose contract expires in 2025.

So far this season, Acuna has made 14 appearances across all competitions. But he has largely been used from the bench.

Acuna has been with Sevilla since 2020, after spending three years at Portuguese giants Sporting CP.

Currently, the South American is on World Cup duty with Argentina. He has appeared in both their games so far, starting and playing a full 90 minutes against Mexico on Saturday night. He now has 45 caps for his country.

It was perhaps only a matter of time before someone from Sevilla was linked with Wolves following Lopetegui’s arrival at Molineux.

He did great work at the Spanish side, and many of the players there really enjoyed working with him.

The interest in Acuna is intriguing.

At the moment, there seemingly isn’t much of a need to strengthen at left-back, with Hugo Bueno having really shone in recent weeks, and Rayan Ait-Nouri also a very bright young talent.

But perhaps Lopetegui feels he needs a more experienced option.

If Acuna does come in, it would be interesting to see how Bueno and Ait-Nouri would be affected.
