However, fans are far from impressed about the idea of moving for the 28-year-old, judging by the responses to Hotspur Related’s tweet about the report.
There are many names being thrown about in the replies, including Kalidou Koulibaly, Nathan Ake and Jonathan Tah, though Boly doesn’t seem to be a very popular choice.
The Frenchman has been a bright spark for Wolves in the early stages of the season, with WhoScored naming him Man of the Match 3 times in 9 matches across the Premier League and Europa League, as well as scoring 1 goal and getting 1 assist.
A selection of Twitter reaction to the link, including posts from underwhelmed fans, can be seen below:
