Wolves transfer news: Wanderers have enquired about Jonathan Clauss

Wolves are reported to have made an enquiry about Lens defender Jonathan Clauss.

This morning the Evening Standard brought a report about the 29-year-old with Manchester United and Chelsea both keen.

The wing-back is valued at £8 million by the Ligue 1 club. The asking price is low due to the player now being the last year of his contract.

Atletico Madrid and Marseille are also interested

The writer of the article, Nizaar Kinsella, has this evening provided some more information, reporting Wolves have enquired as well.

Clauss has been with Lens since the summer of 2020 when he joined from German second division side side Arminia Bielefeld.

Before moving to Lens, he had never played top-flight football.

The star had a really good season, and in March, he actually received his first call up to the France national team from Didier Deschamps. He would make his debut against the Ivory Coast on March 25.

It has been a remarkable rise for Clauss, whose form has really drawn a lot of attention in recent times.

A feature from Ligue1.com earlier this year suggested he is in the same mould as legendary Brazilian Cafu.

GFFN describe him as being ‘technical’ and ‘pacey’, while Goal.com say that he is ‘disciplined, quick, technically sound, and extremely attack-minded like his idol Dani Alves’.

Jonathan Clauss would be a fantastic signing by Wolves

This is a very interesting claim, about a player who has enjoyed a seriously impressive rise in recent times.

Clauss is potentially a perfect signing for Wolves.

He is a very attacking minded wing-back and last season, he scored five goals and made 11 assists.

So far in total for Lens, he’s scored eight goals and made 18 assists in just 74 games. Those are some extremely impressive numbers for someone on his position.

With Ki-Jana Hoever having left Wolves on loan, and Jonny Castro Otto preferring to play on the left, this is a situation Wolves fans may want to keep an eye on.

But competition is very fierce, and the club would be doing very well to win the race.
