Wolves are in advanced talks to extend the contract of 16-year-old Chem Campbell to a new contract at Molineux according to Football Insider.
The club will be looking to tie Campbell down to a first professional contract of his career when he turns 17 next month.
Campbell has been training with the first-team squad this season, with manager Nuno Espirito Santo identifying him as a major talent from within their own ranks.
He became the second-youngest player to start a game for Wolves when he appeared in the Carabao Cup defeat to Aston Villa last month.
The talks come after the youngster was lined up to be the next exciting English talent to move to Germany.
Jadon Sancho, Reiss Nelson and Ademola Lookman have all enjoyed successful stints in the Bundesliga, where Borussia Dortmund, FC Schalke and RB Leipzig were all reported to be keeping an eye on the 16-year-old.
Campbell’s rise to the first team coincides with the club’s need for a deeper squad, as they adapt to life in the Europa League this season. Indeed, while the club have spent fairly big on foreign talents since the arrival of Jorge Mendes behind the scenes, the likes of Morgan Gibbs-White have featured for the first-team after progressing through the club’s academy.
Wolves have already played 24 competitive matches this season, mainly due to their Europa League qualification campaign that begun in July against Crusaders. So, the idea of having more options to rely on going forward could be a promising one given the club’s ambition over the last few years.
