Wolves transfer news: Wolves reject Nottingham Forest bid for Willy Boly

Wolves have reportedly turned down a bid of £1 million from Nottingham Forest for Willy Boly.

According to The Athletic, Wolves are considering selling the Ivory Coast international.

But the club would want more than what Forest offered, and they would also want to secure a replacement.

Boly has not played any minutes so far in Wolves’ Premier League campaign.

Wolves have switched to a back four, meaning there are now just two central defenders in the starting XI.

Bruno Lage has used Maximilian Kilman and Nathan Collins for all three games so far, and the pair are looking very solid together.

But following the exit of Conor Coady, Boly is Wolves’ only centre-back in reserve with a solid amount of Premier League experience.

Forest are keen to sign another centre-half after losing Moussa Niakhate to a serious injury.

They have, of course, already raided Wolves once this summer, signing Morgan Gibbs-White earlier this week for a whopping £42.5 million.

Wolves right to reject Nottingham Forest bid for Boly

Wolves shouldn’t be looking to offload £10 million star Boly at this stage of the window.

After sanctioning Coady’s exit, it feels like it would be a bit of a risk to also lose Boly.

He might not be the fearsome defender of a couple of seasons ago.

But he is still a vastly experienced player with decent quality.

Before Coady, Wolves also allowed Romain Saiss – another experienced player – to leave Molineux. It just doesn’t feel like a sensible move to also get rid of Boly at this point.
