Wolves transfer news: Wanderers one of four sides keen on Mexico star Carlos Salcedo

Wolves are reportedly one one of four teams interested in signing Mexico defender Carlos Salcedo.

W Deportes have claimed the 28-year-old is drawing attention right now, with his contract expiring at the end of this calendar year.

Apparently, Wolves are keen, but there is also interest from Bordeaux, Galatasaray and Palmeiras

Salcedo has been with his club Tigres UANL since January 2019 when he joined from Eintracht Frankfurt.

He has clocked up 100 appearances for the Mexican outfit so far.

He is understood to be available for just £3 million given the situation with his contract (via Media Tempo). That would surely be a fee Wolves could pay.

The consensus about Wolves’ plans for this January is that the club will have to sell if they want to make significant additions.

It seems Adama Traore could be the player to depart, if any. The Spaniard heavily linked with both Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea.

Wolves successfully bringing Salcedo to Molineux would, of course, see him link up with his international teammate Raul Jimenez.

The pair have been in the national team set-up together since Salcedo’s debut in 2015.

Could Raul Jimenez help Wolves land Carlos Salcedo?

Wolves could land a real bargain with Carlos Salcedo, who carries the nickname ‘Titan’ as a result of his imposing physical presence (via FIFA).

At the age of 28, the star is very experienced.

And he’s actually won a few titles in his career already. He’s won a Mexican title and a CONCACAF Champions League with Tigres, and a German cup with Eintracht.

He has also tasted international success with Mexico, winning the Gold Cup in 2019.

Not only that, Salcedo has won a number of individual awards, including being named in the IFFHS CONCACAF Team of the Decade.

It seems like this would be a relatively low-risk move. Maybe Agent Raul Jimenez can put in a good word for the club.
