Wolves transfer news: Wanderers slap £30 million asking price on Gibbs-White

Wolves will reportedly demand £30 million for Morgan Gibbs-White, with Everton having joined the race for the midfielder.

The Athletic report Wanderers will seek a premium fee for the 22-year-old, with several clubs chasing him.

Wolves are ready to try and capitalise on the season Gibbs-White just had with Sheffield United.

The star was on loan at Bramall Lane last term, and scored 12 goals and made 10 assists in 37 appearances.

Nottingham Forest are also keen on signing Gibbs-White, with their manager Steve Cooper having worked with the player before.

But Everton are interested, and have cash to burn following their £60 million sale of Richarlison to Tottenham Hotspur.

Interestingly, Kevin Thelwell now works at Goodison Park. He had a good relationship with Gibbs-White during his time as academy manager and then technical director at Wolves.

It remains to be seen of anyone will come in and meet Wolves’ asking price.

Should Gibbs-White stay at Molineux, the Bruno Lage intends to make him a member of his first-team squad.

The club recently offered him a new deal at Molineux.

But the player has so far refused to sign, meaning it’s possible he could yet depart. The player has two years left on his current contract.

Wolves are taking the right stance over Gibbs-White, as report makes £30 million claim

£30 million would be a fantastic sum of money to receive for Gibbs-White.

Should that happen, he would become Wolves’ second biggest player sale ever, after Diogo Jota’s move to Liverpool (£45 million, BBC Sport).

Ideally, he will stay and become a key first-team player for Wolves, and the asking price will fend off interest clubs.

But it’s possible someone would be willing to pay that amount. Interest in him is high enough for it to happen.

Given where Gibbs-White was at this time a year ago, that would be a really big fee to receive, and it would potentially help Wolves to bring in some new faces.
