Besiktas are trying to sign Haris Seferovic – who has recently been linked with Wolves – from Benfica.
According to A Bola, the Turkish giants, who recently signed Romain Saiss on a free transfer, have failed in their first approach for the Switzerland international.
It is thought they attempted to sign him on loan.
Benfica are after a permanent sale, and believe they can offload him for between €6 million and €8 million (£5.1 million and £6.8 million).
The player currently has one year left on his deal at Benfica.
Recently, the striker was actually pictured with Wolves manager Bruno Lage in a hotel lobby.
That led to speculation that the 46-year-old was talking up a potential move to Wolves to his former player.
Sure enough, reports then followed about interest from Wolves.
But it seems Wanderers will face competition for the 29-year-old if they do want to go for him this summer.
Besiktas are looking to strengthen having put up a very weak defence of their title last season.
Having triumphed in 2020/21, the giants finished down in sixth place in the season just gone.
Seferovic is worth the risk for Wolves with Benfica seeking £5.1-£6.8 million, as Besiktas fail with first approach
Wolves ought to consider making a move for Seferovic given the price range that has been reported.
It is not too much to pay for someone with huge experience at both club and international level.
He’s worked with Lage before, and could potentially help to fix Wolves’ goalscoring issues.
He did have injury problems last year, but he wouldn’t be costing very much and is arguably worth the risk.
But with Besiktas keen, Wanderers will need to make their move pretty sharpish to avoid disappointment if there is indeed interest from Molineux.
