Vušković spent last season on loan with the German outfit.

He clocked up 28 appearances for the club, and Hamburg then exercised their £2.5 million option buy the player back in March.

But they could now look to turn a quick profit on the promising central defender.

Apparently they now value him at £8.6 million.

Wanderers fans are desperately hoping to see new faces soon.

A new central defender should be high on the agenda following the exit of Romain Saiss a few weeks ago.

Ideally, Wolves would be bringing in someone who is established and experienced, with the backline looking quite vulnerable to wards the end of 2021/22.

But at this point, many supporters would take anyone, with pre-season now already underway.

Wolves need experienced centre-half, but Vušković could be an exciting addition

Wolves may end up moving for Vušković since the transfer policy is geared towards buying younger players with a view to developing them and sell them on for big profits.

But Vušković could be an exciting signing. According to the Daily Record, he ‘has real pace’ and is ‘a player who doesn’t say no and puts his body in danger countless times in every match’.

He’s also comfortable with the ball at his feet, and is apparently also a free-kick specialist.

What’s more, according to Hamburg’s official website, he can also play right-back and as a holding midfielder.
