Wolves transfer news: Wanderers interested in Hoffenheim defender Stefan Posch

Wolves are reportedly showing interest in Hoffenheim defender Stefan Posch.

According to Sky Germany reporter Florian Plettenburg, Wanderers are keen on the 25-year-old, who could leave the Bundesliga outfit this summer.

Supposedly, Hoffenheim would expect to sell for around £8.5 million.

Posch, who is an Austria international, has been a member of Hoffenheim’s first-team since 2017.

He joined the club’s youth academy in 2015 and spent a year there before moving to Austrian outfit Admira Wacker Amateure.

After one season there, he made his return to Hoffenheim and had a season with the club’s reserves before making his debut in 2017.

To date the centre-back – described in the past by Hoffeinheim’s director of football Alexander Rosen as ‘fast and strong defender who also acts calmly’ (Hoffenheim official) has clocked up 123 appearances for the first-team.

Wolves, of course, signed Nathan Collins recently from Burnley.

The club splashed just over £20 million on the talented 21-year-old, and hopes are high that he can help elevate the defence to the next level.

Wolves planning to offload a defender, amid claims of interest in Stefan Posch?

This is an intriguing claim considering Wolves just signed Collins.

At the moment, Bruno Lage has quite a few options to play at centre-half.

And considering the manager is possibly going to be using a back four at times in 2022/23, he surely can’t be having too many in his squad.

Perhaps if Wolves did sign Posch then it would mean someone else leaving.

Willy Boly might be the most likely, although there haven’t been any indications so far this summer that Wolves will look to sell.
