Wolves transfer news: Wanderers reluctant to sell Ait-Nouri

Wolves are reportedly reluctant to sell Rayan Ait-Nouri this summer, amid transfer interest from top clubs.

According to The Sun, Wolves have no intention of selling the talented French youngster.

There have been claims recently that Chelsea and Manchester City are keen on him, and could launch £25 million swoops.

Marcos Alonso is set to leave Stamford Bridge, while Oleksandr Zinchenko has been linked with an exit from the Etihad Stadium.

But Wolves sources have apparently insisted neither team have yet expressed any interest.

Wolves aren’t looking to sell, and it’s mentioned that Ait-Nouri has a 50% sell-on clause in place for his next move. That gives Wolves little incentive to sell this summer.

That said, it was reported by the Birmingham Mail that Wolves do have an agreement with Angers to buy out that sell-on clause if they wish to.

Ait-Nouri has enjoyed a really promising couple of years in England so far.

The starlet moved to Molineux on loan initially, before turning his move permanent for £10 million last summer.

The 21-year-old has very high potential, and last term showcased an impressive all-round game.

His defending in particular really improved compared to his first season.

Quite possibly, he stands to be worth a fortune to Wolves in the coming years.

Wolves right not to be looking to sell Ait-Nouri

This is the right stance for Wolves to take over Ait-Nouri.

The youngster has the potential to be a special player in a few years’ time.

His development so far has been really encouraging, and he is a much better player than the one that first walked through the door at Wolves.

He’s on an exciting trajectory, and must be kept around.

Selling this summer would be a big gaffe by Wolves officials, but thankfully it seems there’s not much chance of that.
