Wolves: Wanderers could have sealed Alexander Djiku signing

Wolves: Wanderers could have sealed Alexander Djiku signing -Premier League News

Wolves reportedly missed out on the chance to sign Strasbourg centre-back Alexander Djiku, due to them turning their attention to failed target Craig Dawson.

The Lowdown: Centre-back shortage at Wolves

While Bruno Lage will be happy with his overall efforts in the summer transfer window, the centre of his defence does currently look light.

Granted, Nathan Collins has come in from Burnley, but Wolves have also seen former stalwarts Conor Coady, Romain Saiss and Willy Boly all move on.

It looked as though Dawson was going to come in late in the window but it was a move that ultimately failed to materialise.

The Latest: Djiku could have been signed

According to L’Equipe [via Sport Witness], Wolves had the chance to sign Djiku from Strasbourg, only to focus on snapping up Dawson instead.

It is stated that Wanderers ‘did have the €6m requested’ to sign the 28-year-old  ‘but preferred to sign’ the West Ham man.

The Verdict: Could be a big error

Djiku has been an impressive performer for Strasbourg in recent times, winning an average of three aerial duels per game in Ligue 1 so far this season.

It could be that he was a younger, superior target to Dawson, who not only then didn’t join Wolves but also scuppered their chances of signing the Ghanaian.

Hopefully, it won’t look like a big error over time – free agent Jason Denayer is being linked with a move, which could alleviate the issue – but there is every chance that it could be a big opportunity missed.
