Wolves have reportedly been in talks with Bristol City about a possible move for teenager Alex Scott.
The Telegraph’s John Percy tweeted last night that Wanderers have been in contact with the Championship side.
But as things currently stand, a deal is unlikely to come to fruition.
The Robins have slapped a £25 million asking price on Scott.
Wolves are very keen to sign the player, but they will not pay such an amount.
Molineux officials will move on unless City drop their asking price.
Scott, and England U20 international, is currently one of the best prospects in the English second tier.
He burst onto the scene last season, scoring four goals and making two assists for City, operating as a midfielder and a wing-back.
He is already a U19s European Championship winner with England.
This season, Scott has been a regular feature for City. While he was hasn’t yet opened his account for 2022/23, he has made five assists in 25 league games.
Wolves are not the only club to be showing interest in the talented youngster, who has previously been likened to Jack Grealish.
Leicester City are apparently also keen (via Bristol World).
So far this month, Julen Lopetegui has brough in Matheus Cunha from Atletico Madrid. And he is now being linked with West Ham United pair Craig Dawson and Michail Antonio.
Alex Scott is a brilliant talent, but Wolves can’t spend too much time in talks with Bristol City
Wolves need to work quickly this month.
Scott is a really talented young player who probably won’t be at Bristol City for too much longer.
Manager Nigel Pearson recently admitted ‘he’s good enough, absolutely’ to play for the England senior side in the future.
He also said that his breakthrough season was ‘exceptional’.
It remains to be seen if the Robins will come down on their asking price.
But Wolves can’t spend too much time on this particular deal.
If they are not willing to budge, then Wanderers must move on.
