Wolves are reportedly interested in making a move for Tottenham’s on-loan centre-back Cameron Carter-Vickers this summer.
The Lowdown: Carter-Vickers impressing at Celtic
The American couldn’t be promised regular playing time at Spurs last year, given the battle for game-time, so Celtic snapped him up on a season-long loan deal, with a £10m purchase option if they wish to avail of it.
Carter-Vickers has excelled for the Hoops in 2021/22, proving to be a rock at the heart of the defence and averaging 4.2 successful aerial duels per game across 29 Scottish Premiership appearances. For context, that is 50% more than Wolves’ best performer in this regard, Willy Boly with 2.8.
There looks set to be a fight for the 24-year-old’s signature this summer, with Celtic reportedly keen on making his temporary move a permanent one.
The Latest: Wolves eye up Carter-Vickers move
According to 90min journalist Matt O’Connor-Simpson on Twitter, Wolves are among the clubs eyeing up a move for Carter-Vickers at the end of the season. Sharing a link to his corresponding article, he tweeted:
“Cameron Carter-Vickers is attracting plenty of interest. Fulham & Southampton are the latest to join the race but the likes of Crystal Palace, West Ham & Wolves are looking too.”
The Verdict: Strong summer coup
Carter-Vickers could be a fantastic signing for Wolves ahead of next season, adding much-needed squad depth for Bruno Lage and coming in as a long-term acquisition.
Carter-Vickers has been hailed as ‘immense’ by Chris Sutton and he is someone who, as outlined above, would add aerial dominance and hopefully makes Wolves even more well-drilled defensively.
