Wolves transfer news: Wanderers tracking Noni Madueke

Wolves are reportedly tracking PSV Eindhoven winger Noni Madueke.

According to 90min, Wanderers are in the frame to sign the 20-year-old England U21 international.

The attacker could well leave the Philips Stadion this summer.

A host of clubs are on his tail following his emergence over in the Netherlands.

Wolves are keen on the talent, while there is also interest from Tottenham Hotspur, Leeds United Newcastle United, Everton and Leicester City.

Madueke actually started off in Crystal Palace’s academy before moving to Spurs, where he was the captain of their U16s side. He was with the north London giants for a few years before moving overseas.

He moved to PSV in 2018 on a three-year deal, and signed a new long-term contract with the Eredivisie club at the end of 2021.

He’s since made over 50 appearances for the first-team, but PSV are now facing a battle to hang onto him.

Madueke is a player blessed with impressive pace and dribbling ability.

According to former PSV player Gerald Vanenburg, he is a bit like Paris Saint-Germain superstar Kylian Mbappe in terms of play-style.

He told Voetbal international last August,: “Madueke can really become very good. He is a very special player. His qualities resemble Kylian Mbappe – drive, speed and scoring ability. The top clubs are all crazy about him.”

Wolves have their work cut out to sign Noni Madueke, amid new transfer claim

If Wolves really have interest in Madueke, then it will take a massive effort from the club to actually sign him.

He is clearly a huge talent to have so many clubs on his tail.

With Wolves unlikely to have Adama Traore or Francisco Trincao in their squad next season, it would make sense to go for another wide forward this summer. And Madueke would certainly fit the current transfer policy.

But he is very coveted, and Wolves simply might not be able to compete.

The club are yet to make any new additions this summer, suggesting the potential need to sell Ruben Neves before new signings are made.
