Le Fee has shone this season for Lorient, contributing four goals and five assists in 28 games.

The player is not planning to extend his contract with the club, and he has put the pressure Lorient to sell this summer.

He said in an interview with Le Telegramme: “It’s time for me to leave.

“I have a special bond with the club and that’s why I wanted to extend my contract at the start of the season. I waited for a contract offer from Lorient until December. It never came. Now, I don’t expect anything from the club and I won’t extend my contract.

“I hope to leave this summer so that my transfer will bring money to Lorient.

Previously, Le Fee has been linked with a move to Leicester City and Newcastle United.

The star can play a number of different roles in midfield.

This season, he has tended to operate as a number eight, but sometimes pushes further forward to play as a number 10.

Wolves are facing a potential situation this summer that could see them lose three midfielders.

Ruben Neves could leave as he’ll have just one year on his contract.

Joao Moutinho’s deal is expiring in the summer, and Wolves may feel it’s time to replace the veteran.

And Matheus Nunes has been linked with the likes of Chelsea and Liverpool.

So Wolves are seemingly keen on Le Fee, and it looks like he’s very keen for a move away from Lorient this summer.

It is an exciting link – Le Fee really is a very tidy player and is technically very good, as well as decent defensively.

According to Break the Lines, Le Fee being slight in stature certainly doesn’t count against him.

They said of him in a feature last year: “Not only is Enzo endowed with great body orientation with which he often makes the most of, but he also oozes class and confidence on the ball beyond his age, using his low center of gravity exceptionally well (being only 5’7/170cm), hence often likened to stars Marco Verratti and Thiago Alcantara.”

Wolves will lose at least one of their technicians this summer. So going for someone like Le Fee does seem a sensible idea. And he should not break the bank, since he’ll have just one year left on his deal.
