Yerson Mosquera has given his first interview after signing for Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The central defender became the first new face on the watch of Bruno Lage last week, joining from Atletico Nacional.

It is thought the deal cost around £4.5 million (Express & Star).

Mosquera, 20, will supposedly work within the first-team squad.

The plan is to embed the youngster and help him make the transition, before hopefully stepping into the starting XI.

Little is really known about Mosquera.

It’s been said that the club are very excited about having landed him. Supposedly the club beat the two Manchester clubs to his signature.

Mosquera has now spoken about signing for the club. He seems very keen to get started.

He told the club’s official website: “I’m very happy. Wolves are a very good club, and it’ll be a good test for me to come to England. I want to show the club what I’m capable of.

“They offered me excellent conditions in terms of their football project and I’m highly motivated to come to Wolverhampton and do what I love.”

 

Mosquera also spoke about what he can bring to the table. His words are very encouraging.

“My leadership, my aerial game, my speed over long or short distances and my strength in one-on-one duels,” he added. “I also think my decision-making is going to be fundamental too.

Mosquera could be a good fit for the Premier League

Having strength and speed will stand any defender coming to the Premier League in good stead.

It’s a very physical competition with some fantastic forwards.

Mosquera’s leadership claim is also particularly encouraging.

That would further suggest there is a maturity about Mosquera.

It will take some time for him to adapt to the intensity and pace of English football.

At £4.5 million though, Mosquera has the potential to be a bargain.
