Wolves transfer news: Wanderers interested in Milos Kerkez

Wolves are reportedly interested in signing Milos Kerkez from AZ Alkmaar.

According to Portuguese outlet Record, Wanderers are showing interest in the Hungary international, as are fellow Premier League sides Brentford and Leeds United.

Kerkez has caught the eye this season for being an attacking full-back, scoring three goals and making six assists.

Those are impressive numbers, and it has apparently led to Alkmaar slapping a price tag of at least £17 million on him.

It isn’t just Wolves, Brentford and Leeds that are keen.

The reason Record are reporting the story is because Benfica have also been showing interest in the 19-year-old left-back.

There is also additional interest from Bundesliga clubs Bayer Leverkusen, Wolfsburg and Borussia Dortmund.

Kerkez reportedly sees Portugal as a desirable move.

But Benfica plan to offer below what Alkmaar are offering. They would, however, include a sell-on clause to allow Alkmaar to benefit from his next move.

Wolves have moved to sign a young Hungarian full-back before.

In the summer of 2021, the club signed Bendeguz Bolla from Fehervar for around £800,000.

He has yet to make his debut for the first-team and is currently into his second season on loan at Grasshoppers.

Milos Kerkez one to watch out for, as report claims Wolves are interested

So Wolves are looking at Kerkez, who looks to be one of the Eredivisie’s brightest young talents at the moment.

Nine goal involvements from left-back is very respectable indeed.

Foot The Ball ran a feature on him back in September, and described him as ‘very fast and agile, which allows him to make quick movements around the opposition’s defence’.

He’s already a senior international so clearly the youngster has lots of ability and potential.

Wolves will need to be wary though that Kerkez is on record as saying he would prefer to join a club in Spain over anyone else.

He said in an interview with Scouted Football: “That’s the dream. For me, Spain is number one, England second, and then Italy third. I put Spain in front because I like the football better. It’s more explosive, you have more runs in the deep, and it’s more technical and faster.”

Should this not materialise, then it doesn’t feel like it’d be too much of a blow.

Wanderers already have to very good young left-backs in Hugo Bueno and Rayan Ait-Nouri.
